The tserkva in Mushynka was part of the parish in Tylych. At one time it counted some 770 parishioners. Rev. Mykhayil Krynytskyj (1843-1863) parish priest in Mushynka, published his thesis, in Vienna in 1853, demonstrating that Lemkos were the original Ukrainian inhabitants of these territories. The tserkva is used by the Polish Roman Catholic parish.
