Situated within the old city is the Church of the Holy Spirit, today Jesuit, but originally founded together with the monastery of the Premonstratensians. It is here that the Sanctuary of Our Mother of Consolation is situated.
Her image is displayed here on the 15th century main altar. In 1963, the painting was crowned by the Primate Bishop of the Millennium, Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński, with the Metropolitan Bishop of Krakow Karol Wojtyła assisting in the ceremony. The festivals observed in the sanctuary fall on the Pentecost, and the Feast of Our Mother of Consolation, that is on the Sunday following the Feast of St Augustine (28th August).
