St. Theresa of Jesus Child Parish and Shrine in Presnače

Parsih Presnače was separated from Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in 1971. Beside some town streets, those settlements were given to the parish: Bosanska Vrbanja, Čelinac, Debeljaci, Presnače and Rebrovac. The very beautiful church of St. Theresa of Jesus Child was made there in 1982, and three years later was proclaimed as a Diocesan shrine. Unfortunately, on May 12, 1995 the church was mined and totally destroyed, the parish house burned, and the parish priest Fr. Filip Lukenda and sr. Cecilija Grgić, after badly torturing, ended their lives like martyrs in the burning parish house, which they didn’t want to leave in such straits. Since that time, the parish house has been renewed, and the church has been just built again and the roof was set.

There are two very old cemeteries in the region, one alongside St. Jakov apostol chapel in Debeljaci and another near St. Ana chapel in Rebrovac, beloved shrine from immemorial time. Both chapels were badly damaged in the recent war, as well as the chapel dedicated to the Heart of Virgin Mary at the cemetery in Čelinac that was burned only a year after being built.
