Church of St. Lawrence

Lasa marble underlines the statement of the altar's design

With the consecration of the altar by the Archbishop of Munich and Freising, Cardinal Reinhard Marx, the comprehensive renovation work for the Oberföhring parish church of St. Lawrence (St. Lorenz), which lasted several years, came to an end on 25 October 2020. Lasa Marmo supplied the raw material for the redesign of the altar and ambo of the parish church, which is located in the north-northeast of Munich on the right bank of the Isar. The two main pieces were made from two blocks of LASA marble by the sculptor Gregor Passens, who was born in Berchtesgaden in 1974 and lives in Munich and Buenos Aires (Argentina). He won an artist's competition previously announced by the parish council and the church administration.
