Services of Dedication (several dates)

Religion and faith are deeply rooted in the Lötschental. The churches and chapels are still among the most important locations of the local population. In fact, each of the four communities has its own church and a multitude of chapels and shrines around the village.
The Dedication of the respective church is annually celebrated as a feast. The peculiarity in the Lötschental is that at the Service of Dedication there is a procession of the famous Grenadiers of God.
