Catholic churces in the Schönberg/Szymbark area

I'm not getting any response in the relevant Poland board so I thought I'd post here just in case someone here has information on this area of old West Prussia, now Poland.

A cousin of mine has done extensive research and has traced our family back to the village of Schönberg/Szymbark, in Warmia-Mazury. Peter STILL (birth date unknown) and his family (unnamed wife and children Peter, Johann, Martin and Maria) were issued a visa by the Russian consulate to travel to Russia in 1819. They settled in the Eichwald colony. Some of their descendants left and came to Canada in 1905 - my branch of the family.

Does anyone have information on Catholic churches in the Schönberg/Szymbark area? The only one I've been able to locate is an evangelical Lutheran church and this family was most definitely Catholic.

Thanks in advance.
