The majority of the population of Lohr is Roman Catholic. Today, almost all of the parishes in the area of the town belong to an association of parishes called “12 Apostel am Tor zum Spessart”. The Church of the Resurrection in central Lohr is the first port of call for Protestants.

There are also places of prayer in the two hospitals:­ St. Elisabeth’s Chapel, in the grounds of the regional psychiatric hospital, and a chapel in the general hospital. The pilgrimage church of Mariabuchen is on the eastern side of Lohr am Main, within the boundaries of Sendelbach. It is one of the best­-known places of pilgrimage in the Spessart region.

The Ulu mosque in Partensteinerstrasse is open for all citizens of Islamic faith. Non-­Muslims are also welcome to take part in tours of the building and find out for themselves the significance of the minbar, mihrab, minaret and fountain.
