Kielce – Catholic church of the Transfiguration of the Lord
In 1960, on the initiative of priest Franciszek Sieradzki, a belfry was built, in which an old bell called “Alexander” was placed. In 1981, the church underwent a major renovation, eg. the wooden floor was replaced with a marble floor and the old pulpit was removed. In 1993, the church, together with a wooden belfry and a wooden fence with a gate, as a whole was added to the Polish Register of Immovable Monuments.
In 2005, the parish obtained a building permit for a new church. On August 6, 2005, Bishop Kazimierz Ryczan dedicated the square for the construction of the future temple at Kolonia Street. The new temple is a basilica-type building, with three naves and two high towers. The main theme of thirteen stained-glass windows are the Seven Holy Sacraments.
The rosette on the facade of the temple contains images of four evangelists. The stained glass’ founders were families from the parish. The two of them were funded though by priests as a votive of gratefulness for a gift of priesthood: by previous priest in Białogon Jan Pałys, and by priest Stanisław Kapica.
