The capacity of the chapel is 40 people and masses were served in this chapel only once a year - on the feast of Pentecost. The chapel was replaced in the nineties by a priestly house with a chapel of Fatima Virgin Mary which foundation stone was consecrated by Pope Ján Pavol II. in April 1990 during his visit of Slovakia.
