St. Demetrius, the Great Martyr


1819 My mother Ivanna was born in Rostoka Velyka into the family of Rev. Vasyl Smolyns'kyj. The tserkva was closed for 37 years, from the spring of 1947, when the Ukrainian population was expelled from the region, to 1984 when it was given for use by the local Roman Catholic parish. Prior to W.W.II the tserkva served some 550 faithful. ROZTOKA VELYKA
