Zezenow (Cecenowo), Kreis Stolp, Pommern

This parish dates from 1590. Its patrons were the von Zitzewitz family. It was a Kashubian language church until 1867; it was the last church to use that language. It was originally a Lutheran church that might have served the residents of Podel and Wollin but is now Catholic. Here are pictures of the church and its altar:
