However, the history of the Catholic parish in Lunno goes back even further - to the first half of the 16th century. When Bona Sforza d'Aragona, the wife of King Sigismund I of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, by her decision founded the first church in these parts. A reminder of those events is stone in front of the entrance to the temple, on which there is even a memorable date - 1546.
