About the Church

The first Saint Lawrence Church in Ushachy was founded by a Dominican monastery established in 1716 by Jeronim Zhaba and his spouse Katarzyna from the Protasyevich family. When Ushachy became a with Magdeburg town, Sant Lawrence began to be its patron saint, revered not only in the church but throughout the district.
