The great church in Krzeptówki was built out of gratitude for the rescue of John Paul II after the attempted assassination on 13 May 1981 in Rome.
The Pallottines, however, had stored the statue of Our Lady of Fatima in a chapel on the site since 1961. It was donated by the bishop of Leiria and handed to the church by cardinal Stefan Wyszyński. It was then consecrated by bishop Karol Wojtyła. The most important church fairs are organised on 13 May (the feast of Our Lady of Fatima), 15 August (the feast of the Assumption of Mary) and on 8 December (the feast of of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary).
