The construction of the church began on 18th October 1936, and it was completed on 10th December 1939 when the British rule colonised Mauritius.  Hardworking local volunteers hoisted sand, stone and corals from all parts of the island. It is also the seat of the bishop of the Apostolic Vicariate of Rodrigues. Hundreds of people from all parts of the island gather here every Sunday for the Mass.
