It stands between the road from Uscie Gorlickie to Oil and Zdynia stream, next to the big, well-kept cemetery. With a shingle slim towerit is visible from the distance. It was established in the eighteenth century, despite the turmoil it remained intact interior. The iconostasis of the early twentieth century is the work of Michael Bogdanski. It consists of three rows of Irons, topped with medallions with images of Old Testament prophets.
