The Holy Cross Church in Remscheid-Lüttringhausen was built between 1925 and 1927. Originally, this church was to be built on Kreuzbergstraße. In ancient times, there was a large wooden cross here, to which the faithful from the Bergisches Land made a pilgrimage. The Lennep pastor Schoenen bought this property in 1902. However, the mayor of Lüttringhausen, Richard Gertenbach, found the location more suitable for the new town hall. He therefore exchanged the property with the Catholic clergyman in 1907. For a long time, there had been no Catholics at all in the city, because after the Reformation the citizens had invariably converted to Lutheranism.
