Up until 1738 the Romanian from Carei had a wooden church built in around 1500. In 1752 the construction works of this Greco-catholic church were started, right near the raised church in 1738 by the Greco-catholic Ruthenians. The land was donated by Count Károlyi.

The works lasted 7 years and the church was covered with shingle. It seems that at the inauguration the iconostasis was finished, carved of linden wood with wooden painting and a fine lace covered with gold leaves. The royal doors are of rare beauty. The author is unknown.

In 1876 the damages made by the earthquake in 1834 were fixed and in 1923-1925 the roof was changed with galvanized iron. In 1948 the church was taken by the Orthodox Church. The interior was painted by Vasile Pascu from Focșani in 1965.
