1. St. Theresia von Avila
The Selbecker Kirche St. Theresia von Avila is a Roman Catholic church in Mülheim-Selbeck, Germany. The church of the diocese of Essen belonged from 1303 to 1927 to the parish of Mintard. The strong industrial turnaround caused by the Selbeck ore mines and the associated influx of miners led to the planning of a Catholic church. Count Hubertus Spee zu Linnep donated the necessary land and the "Selbecker Bergwerksverein" financed the planned church building. In the course of time, the boundaries of the communities have often changed. On 27 June 1890, construction work began according to the plans of the Strasbourg master builder Franz Schmitz. On 8 September 1892, Cardinal Philipp Krementz consecrated the Selbeck church.
