The parish church of St. Bartholomew the Apostle

The church was first mentioned by Jan Długosz in his „Book of endowments” (Liber Beneficiorum) around 1450. Bieruń originally belonged to the parish of St. Clement in Lędziny, while the parish in Lędziny was part of the Oświęcim deanery, which belong to the Kraków diocese.

The present church building is at least the fourth building erected in this place. Its construction was completed in 1857 (after the town fire in 1845).

The main altar with the image of St. Bartholomew is located in the chancel of the church. Above it, there is a tondo with a representation of the Holy Trinity and on its sides, the figures of the Evangelists. On either side of the nave, there are two side altars dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary (with the picture of Our Lady of Bieruń) and St. Joseph. The church was entered into the register of monuments of the Silesian Voivodeship in 1966.

Statue of Mary

In front of the entrance (from the market square) to the Church of St. Bartholomew, on a pedestal decorated with S-beams, there is a Baroque statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary Immaculately Conceived, created in 1718. The statue was entered into the register of monuments of the Silesian Voivodeship in 1974.

The betlyjka of Bieruń

An interesting fact about the church in Bieruń is a movable Nativity Scene. Its beginnings date back to the early 1950s. It operates from 25 December to the indulgence day of St. Valentine, i.e. 14 February. There are almost 100 movable and about 50 permanent figures in the Nativity Scene.
