  • Saint Birgitta Church in Maribo

    In 1894 the then Catholic bishop in Denmark sent Reverend Edvard Ortved to Denmark to give the Poles pastoral care, and already in 1895 the thought about a mission station in Maribo arose. Even though Nakskov was the biggest city at the islands, they chose Maribo as the centre for a new church at Lolland-Falster, and a property was bought in the eastern part of Maribo by the present street called Mariagade. Reverend Ortved went to Poland, especially in the quite periods of time in the winter, and even to Russia to collect money for the construction of the church in Maribo. Reverend Ortved had already collected enough money in 1897, and the construction of the church began.
