Presentation - Roman Catholic Church Satu Mare
the former church, mentioned first in 1566, the ecclesiastical
records say: „According to an episcopal document the parochial
church of Máréfalva (Satu Mare) is from the time of Rákóczi
György, namely according to the tradition his name was
engraved in the old steeple... in 1763 a new church was planned to be
built. That was finished in 1772, and consecrated on 19th July, 1783
in honor of Prince St. Imre.
stands on the hill, on the south side of the highway, in the center
of the village. The western steeple is supported with counterforts
located diagonally. In the nave, above the western entrance the 1772
year is visible. The orientated sanctuary is polygonally shaped.
There are no medieval artefacts in the church, no signs of the
medieval construction style, but in the sustainer walling of the
parish's porch an arched monstrance is built in, which dates back to
the turn of the 15th
century with its simply proportioned frame and its 3 salient crosses,
and it is very similar to the stonecutter-marked monstrance, located
in the sanctuary of the church in Farcád (Forţeni).
This carving makes it probable that the first stone church of the
village was built in the same time. Based on the later data that show
the population index of the village the claim and possibility of
construction was given at that time. Three people are mentioned in
the census of horses in 1566;
in the 1567 register of homes with 19 gates. Therefore it is possible
that in the 17th
century the steeple was built on an already existing church.
