  • A stone statue in the back of the left hand side on the way to the building entering the entrance of Oura Cathedral. Bishop Petitjan, a French Catholic missionary, came to Japan in 1860 for missionary work. We built ourtindo and met the discovery of the hidden Christian. He died in 1884 and is buried in Oura Cathedral.

  •  Oura Cathedral was completed in 1864. It is said that Bishop Petitjan was the priest of that time. Because it is the land of Nagasaki where there are a lot of hidden Christians, it seems that the Cathedral was widely opened to the general public. The year after completion, he discovered the believers in this way.  As we climbed up the stone steps leading from Glover Street, there was a small square on the left side of the way, and there was a statue of Bishop Petitjan next to the monument to the discovery of the believers.
