Orthodox church and New Gračanica Monastery[edit]

Third Lake has the headquarters of the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of New Gracanica – Midwestern America.[7] Third Lake is home to the New Gračanica church and monastery complex, which houses a detailed replica of the Gračanica monastery in Serbia. Built on land that the Most Holy Mother of God Serbian Association purchased in 1977, New Gračanica Church and the main building on its grounds dedicated to the feast of the "Protection of the Most Holy Mother of God" were completed and consecrated in 1984. It is an impressive architectural replica of the original Gračanica of Kosovo, but built in a scale eighteen percent larger than the original. New Gračanica is richly attired with detail such as hand-carved wooden entrance doors depicting 23 monasteries and churches from various regions of Serbia.
