Indeed, she may have come in the area together with Saint John to spread Christianity. Every Sunday and on Holy Days, there is a mass held here in English. The house was officially declared a shrine of the  Roman Catholic Church in 1896, and since then it has become a popular place of  pilgrimage. It has been running as an active chapel over a century.
