This church in a cottage was burned by the Turks and since then it remained with the name “the burnt church”. Together with the moving of the inhabitants closer to Pătulele, in the place called Boierești, was also built a church on the current land of Saint Nicolas church, from wooden bars, brought from the forest Vlădaia, situated on for stone seats. This church, built after the year 1840, it functioned as an only church of the locality Pătulelel. Around the year 1883, this church becoming uncomprehending, it was built a church from the wall with the titular saint of Saint Gheorghe, with the help of the Prince Alexandru B.

Around the year 1878, when it became unfitting for the religious services, the wooden church Saint Nicolas was closed at the recommendation of His Eminence the Bishop Ghenadie Enăchescu, who visited Pătulele. The church goers of the small wooden church Saint Nicolas, collected the funds either from the village, or from the neighboring villages, in order to build up from the wall the current one, putting its foundation in 1903.

Moruzzi, it was consecrated on the date of the 8th of May 1905.
