The predecessor church fell victim to a bombing raid in 1945.
The predecessor church of today's church in Haiger fell victim to a devastating bomb attack in 1945. When the number of Catholic Christians increased significantly after the end of the war due to the expulsion, it was immediately decided to rebuild the destroyed church. As early as 1950, the first service could be celebrated in the present church, which was still under construction.
