Church History

Originally built before 1911, the church has had a series of renovations. In 1968, the original church was replaced by the current structure. Unfortunately, the church does not have a resident priest at this time. Each week, approximately 20-30 people attend a reader’s service when a visiting priest is not able to travel to the village.
