Known to have existed prior to 1231, St. Margaret’s operated as a parish church and was largely unmentioned until priest Stanisław Grudowicz repaired it in 1658. In the 17th century a curate’s fascination with St. Phillip Neri lead to the addition of a chapel in his honour, and Śródka became home to the country’s first Philippine Order congregation soon afterwards. Interestingly, during the war the church was closed and operated as a repository for books that Poles were trying to spare from destruction. Inside the church features a beautiful flower-adorned roof and two Poznań paintings worth noting: the Holy Mother with Child dated around 1600, and Madonna with Child dating to around 1630.
You can see the interior of the church 30 minutes prior to mass.
