The Ledine village patron is St. Jacob (July 25th), so the villagers solemnly celebrate Jacob’s Sunday every year. The church of St. Jacob was officially mentioned already in 1540, yet it was given its present-day form after construction work in 1666. 

The precious altar painting of the patron saint was created by the great Slovene painter Janez Šubic in 1877. In the ecclesiastical sense, Ledine has for long centuries belonged to the Žiri Parish. Only in 1864 did the village succeed to institute a parish of their own, which was, after 130 years of existence, suddenly left without a priest, so that it has to be administered by a cleric from Spodnja Idrija.

Since ancient times, and in accordance with long-established tradition, Ledine’s inhabitants faithfully embark on a pilgrimage to Virgin Mary on the Rock (Marija na Skalci) in Spodnja Idrija every year. In 1840 hail ravaged their fields seven times, and in that time they made a solemn vow to regularly ask for intercession from the Parish’s patroness. At the edge of the Šnit meadow, by tracks that were beaten through their landscapes since time immemorial, there stands an ancient religious landmark, and below the Žorgovše farm near Pečnik mills one may find the exemplarily restored big Mary’s Chapel.
