The Church of the Holy Family in Tepanje already looks very new. The settlement of Tepanje, just a few kilometers outside the town of Slovenske Konjice, spread rapidly after the World War II and the need for a new church soon emerged.
Its construction was long opposed to by the authorities at the time, however the issuing of the building permit was triggered by a rather unpleasant event; a violent demolition of the chapel by the road to the cemetery in Zgornja Pristava near Konjice.
A modern sacral building
The plans for the Church of the Holy Family were made by Jože Požauko from Maribor. The construction was taken over by the construction company from Konjice, and the locals volunteered. The church was completely renovated in 2002. It received new oak benches, a marble altar and windows, it was newly roofed and the bell tower was renewed, making it a truly aesthetic example of a modern sacral building.
