Church of St Pope John Paul II (Szőgye)

The village, attached to Kisbajcs in 1927, had a small chapel in the Danube's floodplain, which was often submerged by the river flooding. The inhabitants of Szőgye started building their new church in 2014, in a safe place now, while the sanctuary and the nave were furnished in 2015. The church, built and furnished based on the plans of Attila Pongrácz and István Horváth, was consecrated in 2016 and boasts a modern triptych as its altarpiece. The middle part of Erzsébet Udvardy's work depicts Pope John Paul II kneeling in front of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa, while the two side pictures depict St Cyril and St Methodius.
