Shrine of the Good Shepherd

Add to the planner

In the church of the Nativity of Mary and St Martin in Strzelce, there are a number of brick shrines. Three of them, dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes, the Good Shepherd and St Giles, recently underwent renovation. Each shrine is covered with a double-pitched roof with pinnacles on two frontal edges, flanking a cross.

The shrine of the Good Shepherd can be found to the left of the main entrance to the church, next to the shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. The statue in the shrine depicts Jesus with a lamb on his right arm, which he holds in his hand with a visible crucifixion wound. Christ is dressed in a white robe and dark red tunic. The image of Christ as the Good Shepherd is one of the oldest in Christian iconography. In the Catholic Church, the fourth Sunday of Easter is celebrated as Good Shepherd Sunday – a day of prayer for vocations.
