Description:
Church from the XVI c., built on a hill, where, perhaps, the town of Shchyrets’ lay in the 12th c. After a number of Tartar invasions, fires and destructions of the temple, it was rebuilt in 1662, and gained its current appearance in 1892. At first, the church had three bells and had wooden cupolas on stone walls, but after the rebuilding and reconstruction of 1893, according to the work of the well known Galician architect Vasyl’ Nahirnyi, it was left with one cupola. During the reconstruction of 1934, led by the Lviv architect Lev Levynskyi, a new cupola was put in place and elegant arches removed when the cupola windows were surrounded by a wall. Then the "babinets" was walled over with squared stones. According to the boundaries of the wall, next to the gate-belltower of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary Church, a building for the deacon school was built. In the 19th c. it was no longer functional, and the building was used for the housekeeping needs of the church.
