According to John, Jesus appeared to his disciples for the third time after his resurrection on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. It must be known that the previous night, Peter and several disciples had sailed in a boat on the lake to fish for fish, but the fishing was really not good. However, the next morning a man appeared on the shore and told them to throw their net on the right side of their boat. Without reflection, they threw their net in the water on the side indicated, a miracle that produced. They caught so many fish that they could not bring the net back then abnormally loaded inside the boat. It was then that Peter recognized Jesus, and quickly jumped into the water outside the boat to go to the shore to meet him. The other disciples continued by boat, dragging the net in the water behind them. When they landed, Jesus had already prepared a charcoal fire to cook the fish and bring bread. They took a hearty breakfast together. It is believed that this took place on the Christi Christia, a large rock embedded within the chapel. After breakfast, Jesus restored Peter with the words “feed my sheep”. The church was named because of this event. Located directly on the lake, it is made of gray stone inside and outside with a modest tower in a corner.
