The town Krystynopil was founded on the lands of setting Novyj Dvir. In 1613 it was firstly mentioned about this small village in monastery books of catholic Bernardine order from Sokal, which patronized the rome-catholic society in Novy Dvir. Feliks Kazimierz Potocki, the founder of the town got the Magdeburg low for the town in 1692, and built the wooden church of Holy Spirit and invited Bernardine monks to take care of Catholics in the town. Soon the fire destroyed the wooden church, that’s why Feliks Kazimierz Potocki began to build new church in baroque style in 1701. Francisk Silezij Potocki got st. relics of St. Klymentiy I, pope and martyr, which was sent to Krym, where he died. Those relics were given by Pope Innocent XIII. The second relic in the church was the part of cross brought from Rome in 1752.
