St. James Parish Church

The construction of the old parish church was completed in 1897, soon after the creation of the parish (1892). It was a specious and beautiful construction for its time. Built on unstable ground, it soon started to develop fissures. Immediately after the end of the Firs World War, the parishioners began to think about building a new church. Construction lasted from 1934 until January 19, 1969, when it was consecrated.

 

St. Jacob Church is today the focus and the centre of both sacramental and prayer life, not only for the parishioners, but also for pilgrims.

A fenced-in park situated within the traffic circle at east side of the Shrine remind us of the place where the old parish church once stood.

 

Statue of the Queen of Peace

The marble statue of the Queen of Peace, which became a symbol of the Shrine (the work of Dino Felici), was put up in 1987 at the square in front of the church.
