Presentation - The Millenium Church Miercurea Ciuc
The Millenium Church
Architects: Imre Makovecz and Erno Bogos
The church with two towers in the center of town is the preserver of the past and the future of the Hungarians. In front of the towers there are entrances above which 5-5 crosses symbolize the ten centuries hisotry of the Christian Hungarians. The centre of the tent-like roof is a glass cupola. That is where the light of the sun enters the church signifying that the Word changed into body and lives among us. Therefore, the altar is also positioned in the centre of the church.
On the four corners of the cupola you will see the copper statues of Saint Michael, Rafael and Uriel angels. These were created by the local scultor Odon Nagy. The gallery and the basement represent important parts of the church. In the centre of the church one can see the statue of the Grand Lady of Hungarians that was made in Fatima. On the left of this statue you will find the P. Rupert Mayer chapel. The altar of this chapel is ornated with three frescos of the local painter Arpad Marton. On the fresco on the left one can see the first holy Hungarian family. On the walls of the nave there are situated two sculpture torsos from the 18th century. Both were - wounded - in September 1944. On the left side you will find the torso of the sculpture of Christ from Ajnad which was half-burned, on the right you will find the sculpture of Saint John from Nepomuki that used to be in the Holy Cross church.
