First information about the Church in chronicles is in 1326. The Church we can see today was founded by Kazimierz Wielki (Kazimierz the Great) - King of Poland in 1340. Only small pieces of the original Church menaged to survive till now. In 1601 there was a huge fire which destroyed almost all the town. The only survived buildings were a Church of St. Anna and some houses.

In 1606 the Church was rebuilt and reconsecrated in 1649. there were some more fires in the next years (1657, 1710, 1719, 1764). In 1765 the Church was rebuilt. In 1897 all alters were reconstructed.
