The Polish Cultural Heritage Foundation plans to restore the facade of the Collegiate Church of the Holy Trinity in Olica. The church is recognized as the most beautiful Polish church in Volyn. Restoration work has already been ongoing for several years.
According to the head of the fund, Dr. Michal Lyaschkovsky, the restoration of the facade requires a lot of work and funds:
“Due to the research we were able to determine the colors of layers and fragments of murals. The project for the restoration of the facade is ready, it will cost 1.5 million zloty, a large sum. Hope we will be able to raise these funds. We look forward to the results of various competitions and grants, money raising from sponsors and individuals. I hope that we will be able to raise money and that in 2018, on the 100th anniversary of the restoration of Poland independence, we will be able to make such a gift to the Poles who live in Volyn. I hope that the original look of the facade of the Collegiate Church of the Holy Trinity in Olica, which is recognized as the most beautiful temple of Volyn, will be restored.”
