The parish church is a special place for John Paul II, this is where he was baptised, received his First Holy Communion, was confirmed and said his first mass.
He came here as a Pope during his three visits to Wadowice – in 1979, 1991, 1999. In 1992 John Paul II upgraded the status of the Church of the Presentation at the Temple to Minor Basilica. There are four chapels in the basilica: St Cross Chapel with Wadowice painting of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, crowned by the Pope during his last visit in Wadowice, Sacred Family Chapel with the Sacred Family figures and the baptismal font where Karol Józef Wojtyła was baptised on 20th June 1920, placed centrally, Crucifixion Chapel with the relics of St Father Pio, Szymon of Lipnica and Maximilian Kolbe placed in the tabernacle, Blessed Holy Father John Paul II Chapel with a reliquary containing his blood, placed on the altar and with the chapel patron painting above. The figure of Blessed John Paul II and the sceptre of Pope Benedict XVI are placed in the chapel as the souvenir of the Pope’s pilgrimage to Wadowice in 2006.
