St Catherine Parish in Tenczynek was probably founded before 1335. The church was consecrated in 1748.
The Shrine of Our Lady of Tenczynek, located in the church, is famous for the venerated image of Our Lady of Victory of Tenczynek – the Patroness of Families. The image depicts Our Lady with the Infant Jesus. This style of Marian image is very common in the paintings in Poland and Europe, and their prototype, "Salus Populi Romani (Salvation of the Roman People)" has its origin in the Roman church of Santa Maria Maggiore, also known as the Church of Our Lady of the Snows.
