History[edit | edit source]

Piteå City Parish was broken out of Piteå Parish in 1686. At the same time, Piteå Parish changed its name to Piteå County Parish.

Piteå City Parish was part of a joint pastorate with Piteå County Parish (mother parish) 1686-1901. In the years 1809-1894, Älvsby parish was also part of the pastorate.

On May 1, 1901, the city parish formed its own pastorate.

In 1940, certain smaller areas were transferred between Piteå County Parish and Piteå City Parish.

The city of Piteå was founded on 12 May 1621 in the immediate vicinity of Piteå parish church in Öjebyn. The town burned to the ground in 1666. After a decision to build a new market town for Piteå, Skellefteå and Burträsk parishes (with the name Hedvigstad) in Storkåge was not realized, the new town Piteå was built on Häggholmen about half a mile from the parish church according to Kungl. Maj:ts resolution of October 1, 1668.
