The Our Lady of Sorrows Chapel 

At the top of the Szőlő Hill, in Benczúrfalva, at the end of St. Anthony’s Votive Stations of the Cross a chapel for peace is in construction.

Pro Arte et Natura Foundation and one of its founders, Antal Lipthay, are committed to building the Our Lady of Sorrows Chapel in Benczúrfalva, Nógrád County, Hungary. Since its launch, this is the most important task of the foundation. This most special initiative for peace bringing people together in Christ is serving the common good and life.

The patron saints of the chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows Chapel are the Franciscan saints, and it has been under construction since 2016. The construction progresses according to the donations sent.

The building echoes the circular chapels of the Arpad dynasty, facing east, Christ, the rising sun.

The chapel has a circular shape that used to be a tradition during the Arpad dynasty and because it inspires people to pray and see how complete and infinite God’s world is.

The structure is closed by a hemispheric dome. Around the chapel a courtyard will be set up, protected by a wall, that would serve as a burial place for clerics, supporters or members of the community so they can wait for the return of Jesus and the eternal life there.

The chapel is open to everyone to strengthen Hungarian Christian values, the faith in Historic Hungary and the hope of peace.
