This Neo-Gothic chapel built in 1862 was consecrated to Our Lady of Sorrows. In catholic liturgy the feast has been celebrated since the 13th century on 15th September. Because of the Combes Law (Separation of the Churches and the State) voted in 1905 by the French parliament, members of the French clergy found refuge in the south of Gaume, in Torgny, Virton, Rouvroy and Dampicourt among others.
Our Lady of Sorrows can be represented in three different ways: as a sitting or standing Virgin Mary whose heart is pierced by seven swords, a Virgin of the Calvary, a Pietà. The statues always express mournfulness, hence the French expression “avoir un air (ou une tête) de Mater Dolorossa” (i.e. pull a mournful face). Inside the chapel, one finds the three figures of the calvary and a statue of Saint Remi. These statues date from the second half of the 19th century.
