Brick Chapel of St. John of Nepomuk was founded in the nineteenth century. Right next to it grows the old lime tree, which trunk knits together with the chapel. The tree was granted the status of a natural monument.

Residents of Stanowice in the first years after the Second World War decided to build a church because until now the only place for gathering at joint services was the chapel of St. John of Nepomuk. The construction of the church began on 18 May 1947 and on 17 July 1949, the dedication of the finished church took place.
