Church on personalized stamp

Here you see the Catholic Church at Hoofddorp. This church was founded in 1860, 8 years after the Haarlemmermeer (meer=lake, the lake was near Haarlem) was dry. That takes from 1849 till 1852. The main village was Hoofddorp, now its a modern town.
Joannes de Doper (the Baptizer) is the name of the church. Maybe its nice to know that my grandfather was a verger there in 1919, when my father was born there.
The parisch did make some personalized stamps, great to receive them from a friend there.
