The wooden church in Codru Butesii, dating back to the 16th-17th century, is not known precisely. It was passed from father to son that it was very old and it was originally built at Copalnic Mănăștur. From them he came to Preluca Noua. Building a new church, the faithful here in 1937 sold the wooden church to the community of Codru Butesii. They bought it without icons and without painting, so after the painting they painted it and painted it. That old painting, made on canvas, is kept in the attic of the church. Virtually nothing is known about the fate of icons.

The current painting was done in the 20th century. With so many moves the old icons have disappeared, only a few have reached the Preluca Noua. It is a church that is used today by the faithful of the locality and is beautifully maintained.
