Verviers had a branch for many years until about 2000. Three branches, Verviers, Herstal (east of Liege), and Seraing (west of Liege) were dissolved and reassigned to the two Liege branches at the same time. Herstal and Seraing were long-time units and each that their own building. The Seraing chapel was built in 1971.

And the Seraing building was sold off to a housing developer who tore it down.
