This additional inscription is to the left of the main entrance to the temple. It is in latin and fairly hard to read, but probably refers to 1979 maintenance work on the temple. It reads:

hoc parochiale templum
Petri apostolorum principis
Pauli Gentium apostoli
post CLXXIV ann
adhellattone erectum
