The Parish Church of St. George
The Trsat parish had a parish house in the early 18th century. It was rebuilt almost from the ground after the earthquake had almost destroyed it in 1750. The second floor was built in 1807, and nowadays the parish house is managed by the Archdiocese. Today, the Parish Pastoral Council, the Parish Economic Council for the Parish Caritas and the Heart of Jesus and Mary prayer group are in charge. On October 18, 2009 in the Parish of St. George, in the village of Orehovica, a blessing took place for the restored chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes in Rijeka.
