The path of the stones

The idea is to create a small open-air celebrating spot that can be used as a resting place for departures and arrivals at the meeting point of the Mary pilgrimage routes running across the Anna Meadow. 

 

In the middle of the 20th century, at a site close to the city, as a result of a
vision, a church was planned to be built, the plans of which were indeed completed, but which could not be built due to the historical situation.

There was a prayer community, active ever since, formed for the establishment of the church since, but the shrine was not built, although the stones for the walls of the church are already at the site.

The chapel designed for the Anna Meadow is both a memorial site and an ever-expanding cathedral of a living community. Its building blocks are building stones carved for the planned church, donated by spiritual communities to build the temple.

Although the church was not built in its original form, but in our plan we use its stones, so the old intent is realized in the form of the material. New communities can join this by donating additional stones, so the size of the church can keep expanding. Donating communities receive a memorial stone that they can build into their own environment.
