Zakopane - Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima in Krzeptowki

Sanctuary in Krzeptowki, a place of the Virgin Mary's cult, is closely related to John Paul II. Sanctuary was created in gratitude for saving Karol Wojtyla's life in the unsuccessful assasination attempt on 13th of May 1981. Pallotines, who have been spreading the Fatima cult since 1946, are taking care of the church. The oldest part of the complex, is the chapel of the Immaculate Heart of Virgin Mary, built in 1951, with the statue of Our Lady of Fatima located inside. It was given to cardinal Stefan Wyszynski by the bishop of Fatima and, later, placed in the chapel. On 15th of October 1961, Karol Wojtyla, bishop of Krakow at that time, consecrated the chapel and the statue. On 21st of October 1987, pope John Paul II crowned the statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

The church of Our Lady of Fatima is situated next to the chapel. The building was erected between the year 1987 and 1992. The temple was consecrated by John Paul II on 7th of June 1997 during his 6th pilgrimage to Poland. Sanctuary grounds are also home to two monuments of John Paul II and the altar, on which John Paul II conducted the mass in Zakopane in 1997, was moved there. The place has become a destination of many pilgrimages.
