An example of wooden ecclesiastical architecture, typical for the region.

History

The church, built in 1766, was funded by Franciszek Wysocki and erected during the period when Florian Ostrołęcki served as the local parish priest. The church was renovated several times. In the years 1955-57, a chapel and a porch were added, based on existing foundations discovered on the site.

Description

The church is situated on a plot of land circumscribed by a fence, in the village of Kościeszki. It is a three-nave Baroque church, oriented towards the east, its interior following a pseudo-basilica layout. The church is a wooden log structure, positioned on a stone foundation, its walls covered with weatherboards; the roof is clad with ceramic roof tiles. Inside, the church features flat ceilings. The nave was designed on a roughly square floor plan, while the chancel, erected on a rectangular floor plan, features a semi-hexagonal end section. A pair of brick annexes adjoin the southern and northern walls of the chancel. A timber-framed porch with brick infills adjoins the western wall of the nave. The roofs are of the gable type. A steeple rises above the ridge of the nave roof. The walls are covered with weatherboards in a vertical arrangement and pierced with a number of rectangular window openings. The interior décor dates back to the 17th and 18th century.

Property of the parish - the structure can be viewed from the outside.
