Geocache Description:

Une jolie chapelle au croisement de trois routes forestières.

A lovely chapel, at the cross point of three forest roads.


Cette petite chapelle, au croisement des routes menant aux villages de La Haye, Viomenil et Charmois l'Orgueuilleux, est un lieu de rendez-vous et de pèlerinage depuis un siècle et demi.
Elle fut construite en 1865 par une famille du lieu-dit La Neuve Verrerie, en hommage à leur fille décédée en bas âge. A cette époque, les 4 kilomètres de route pour se rendre au cimetière le plus proche prenaient du temps, et cette chapelle leur permit de se recueillir plus facilement.
Située à l'origine sur un terrain privé, la commune de Charmois l'Orgueilleux en a fait l'acquisition en 2014.
Une messe y est organisée chaque week-end du 15 août, et elle constitue le point de départ de plusieurs randonnées.

Notre-Dame-de-la-Miséricorde (Our-Lady-of-Mercy) is located at the cross point of the roads to the villages of La Haye, Viomenil and Charmois l'Orgueilleux. It has been a place of meeting and pilgrimage for a century and a half.
Il was built in 1865 by a family living in the nearby La Neuve Verrerie, who had lost a young daughter. At this time, the 4 kilometers to the nearest cemetery were a long way, so this chapel, not far from their home, allowed them to mourn their child in peace.
Originally located on a private yard, it was bought by the village of Charmois l'Orgueilleux in 2014.
Every year, a mass is celebrated there for the Assumption. It is also the starting point of several treks.
