    St. Peter is a Romanesque Roman Catholic chapel in Kempen (district of Viersen).According to local tradition, the origins of the St. Peter chapel date back to around 900 in Carolingian times. However, there may have been a wooden predecessor. The Romanesque sacral building represents the oldest building in Kempen and in the area of today's Viersen district.

    This chapel on the outskirts of Kempen was consecrated to Saint Peter (Peter). Simon, nicknamed Petrus (rock), was a fisherman on Lake Genesareth when he - together with his brother - was called by Jesus Christ to be a "fisherman of men". According to the Catholic understanding, he is the highest apostle, and the two millennia long line of popes - currently Francis - are in his successor. On statues and paintings Peter is almost always shown with two keys in his hand, this attribute refers to the Bible verse in Matthew: “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; what you will bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and what you will loosen on earth will be loosened in heaven ”(Chapter 16, verse 19).
    Together with Paul, Peter is also known as the "princes of the apostles"; their common feast day in the saints' calendar is on June 29th.
