Matenora Church

Remodeled in 2010

  • 1002views

On the way from the village's highway entrance to the church, there's a building known as the "Oratio Hall". It's unknown when it was built, but it's said that it was Matenora Village's first place of prayer. In 1956, this became too small to accomodate churchgoers, and a new church was built where the current one stands. The church was remodeled in 2010. In 1975, the Matenora Parish was established as an independent parish.

Churches are very important places of prayer for their followers. When observing churches, please follow proper etiquette such that everyone can feel comfortable in the churches. A guide for church etiquette can be found here.
