These three names refer to a small XVIIIth century church, the building of which started around 1754.Craftsmen working on the Cathedral also took part in it. The painting on the elliptic dome, which is rather rare in Transylvania, was made by I. A. Rupp in 1869. The wood-carvings are also magnificent. The group of statues over the main altar represents the Holy Trinity. On the pulpit one can see the symbols representing the four evangelists.

A winged lad represents Saint Matthew, an ox head stands for Saint Lukas, a lion head for Saint Mark and an eagle with spread wings represents Saint John. There are also many large wood statues, which used to be on the basilica's main altar. They got here after the marble altar was erected in the basilica.

The name of the artist who made these remarkably well carved wood statues is unknown. In the vault they buried noblemen, but the founder of the church, György Gyöngyösi, is also buried here. It was him who built the order's house, the hospital and the apothecary, which still function today.
