The wooden Holy Trinity Church (Presviatoji Trijtsi) was built in the 17th century in the village of Sykhiv (1683). The 1850 cadaster mentions both the church, a small bell tower and a nearby cemetery. The church was renovated in 1875, and fundamentally restored in 1932-1933, when the new stone foundation was put in place. The parish priest Andriy Ishchak (1887-1941), later beatified by the Pope Joph Paul II, was murdered near the church by the Soviet soldiers. He is buried in the church cemetery. In 1969 a restoration by Bohdan Kendzielski was undertaken. The church functioned until 1960s, when it was turned into a museum. The local Sykhiv inhabitants opened it again in 1990 as a Greek Catholic church, and in 1994 the interior paintings were restored.
