Historical Details

Build - Founding Year:

History:
The Serbian Orthodox Church in Buchrein in Luzern was established on March 23, 1998 to serve the Serbian Orthodox Christians who live in the general Luzern area. The first Priest, Father Simeun Prodanovich was established on July 1, 1998 to the Parish of the Church. On November 1, 1998, Priest Milutin Nikolic replaced Father Simeon in our Church, and on January 1, 2005 Priest Dragan Stanojevic replaced Father Milutin and now is responsible for the Parish of Luzern The Church really started to prosper with Father Dragan’s arrival to the Church. In 2006 the President of the Church Board, Dragoslav Popovic, and Father Dragan Stanojevic signed a Contract with the local government in Luzern/Buchrain for the use of the Church of St. Agatha. Because this Church was catholic before, SPC needed to invest significant time and money to refurbish the Church interior and exterior, including icons. In 2007, the Church organized a Choir and special education on Saturday for youth and adults. Additionally, the Church also organized external Liturgy in Baar/Zug and Altdorf/Uri.
