The bishop of Šibenik Josip Arnerić made an agreement with then-pastor don Nikola Dragičević to buy a plot land at Gorač to build a church. The church was then dedicated to St. Joseph.
Due to the inherent danger of collapsing, pastor Dragičević and the two congregations of Vrsine and Poljica began a thorough and speedy renewal of the church and its surrounding area. With a spirit of determination and unity, he church’s renovations were mainly financed through the contributions of the congregation and volunteered work force by the residents of both Poljica and Vrsine.
The overall construction lasted for several months and on July 25, 2011 a rechristening ceremony of the newly renovated church was held, which came to be known as the “Dove of Gorač“. Mass is held on the second and fourth Sundays of the month and on major holidays.
