Jūrkalne Roman Catholic Church



The heart of Jūrkalne village is home to Jūrkalne Nature and Recreation Park, including the Vējturi House, the legendary Golden Moped memorial site, the church apple orchard and nature trails to the beach. This land belongs to the Roman Catholic parish of Jūrkalne, which manages an architectural monument of national significance – Jūrkalne St Joseph Roman Catholic Church which holds regular services. Under the strong influence of the Catholic Church and various other traditions, the Suiti people, including Jūrkalne local community, have developed and preserved an outstanding cultural environment and a unique identity.
