Icon from Grabowka

8 July 2020

We present you a 18th century icon from the Greek Catholic Church in Grabówka. This icon is the only part of the late iconostasis that we know about….

St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Grabówka is a Greek Catholic church that belongs to a parish in Lalin. It was built in 1864, probably in a place of an older, wooden church from 1789.

We are a group of people committed to salvaging this monument. We operate with complete approval of the parish priest Józef Watras.

The first step was preparing documentation. From The Administration and The Council of A County in Brzozów (Zarząd i Rada Powiatu w Brzozowie) we received funds needed for this purpose.

We were granted with a financial help from Voivodeship Heritage Conservator (Wojewódzki Konserwator Zabytków) for the roof renovation.

In February 2020 we have done the first workings. One of them was cutting branches above the church’s roof. This is just the beginning…
