The most unusual, balanced and inventively designed sacral building of the second half of the 20th century in Slovenia is the cylindrical ground floor church with a slanted roof in the Ljubljana suburb of Dravlje. It was built beside the old Dravlje Baroque Romanesque church of St. Rochus (sv. Rok) and by the crossroads at the edge of the promenade that leads to the cemetery. The church was thoughtfully planned out by the architect Marko Mušič. He created a modernly designed building in line with a newer concept of the worship of God that at the same time takes into account the Baroque church and the dynamics of the linden tree promenade.

The inner nucleus is a deepened, amphitheatric hall with a simple altar and blue tinted windows that open towards the church of St. Rochus and the nearby trees. The area is supplemented by contemporary and uniformly designed fittings. The prevailing material on the altar and its accessories is white marble. The seats, like those in the theatre, rise to the gallery and in dynamic form towards the auxiliary areas. The church was consecrated in 1985.

The new church is the seat of the parish; it is maintained and open regularly.
