The Church of the Holy Name of Jesus began construction in 1880, and was completed of 1884. Originally the Evangelical-Augsburg church of St. John the Evangelist, it is built in the neo-Romanesque style, according to the design of engineer Ludwik Schreiber. Later, the Jesuits carried out the ministry, buying buildings from the Evangelical-Augsburg community in 1989. Catholics used the church on the basis of the consent of the state authority, which defined it as post-Evangelical property. The church was consecrated by Fr. Franciszek Przybylski SI, superior of the Jesuits in Łódź, on behalf of the clerical authority.
