Kostel Panny Marie Bolestné ci též Kostelícek se nachází v Pardubicích na križovatce Štrossovy a Dašické ulice. Kostel byl vystaven stavitelem Jakubem Pešinou na popud pardubického kupce Jakuba Antonína Štrose. Základní kámen kostela byl položen 4. cervence 1710 a ješte v témže roce se v nem konaly první bohoslužby. Kostel obklopoval hrbitov, jehož pudorys dodnes vytycuje kamenná zed z roku 1715. V roce 1786, za panování císare Josefa II., byl Kostelícek zrušen a stal se mestským skladištem dreva. Obnoven byl o pet let pozdeji (ovšem bez hrbitova). Od roku 2006 Kostelícek prošel rozsáhlou rekonstrukcí. Dnes patrí do reckokatolické farnosti v Pardubicích.
Date the Church was built, dedicated or cornerstone laid: 7/4/1710
