St. Georg (Buisdorf)
Sankt Georg is a Roman Catholic chapel in the Sankt Augustinian district of Buisdorf in the Rhein-Sieg district in North Rhine-Westphalia . It is a branch church of St. Martinus in Niederpleis and thus belongs to the Catholic pastoral care area of Sankt Augustin in the Rhein-Sieg district dean of the Archdiocese of Cologne . The current building was completed in 1976.
Even before the Second World War there was a George Chapel in Buisdorf, but it was demolished in 1934 due to road straightening. To build today's chapel, the parish acquired the property on Zissendorfer Strasse in 1970. The foundation stone was laid on December 7, 1975; The architects of the building were Peter Martini and Otwin Kraume. The church was consecrated on December 11, 1976. The patron saint was Saint George , whom the people of Buidorf have venerated as a helper in great need since 1755 and who was saint of the mother parish of St. Martinus until 1689.
The chapel has three bells and an Oberlinger organ with 18 sounding grids. Behind the altar are two large oil paintings of the footfalls of Christ, dating from the mid-17th century. There is also a pietà made of plaster , a baroque wooden sculpture of St. Martin and a representation of Mary on volute consoles. These items of equipment are protected as movable monuments.
