The Greco-catholic church of Carei city was built in 1736-1739. Up until then there was only one wooden church and because the Romanian Greco-catholic Christians and the Ruthenians didn't get along the Ruthenians had to begin the construction of a new church.

The works were financed by the personal fortune of Rácz Demeter, the manager of The Károlyis' lands.

Beside the church Rácz built himself a manor and under the church a crypt but he wasn't buried here. The church is very high. On the West side there are two towers and above the nave there is a cupola tower. Above the sacristy a new cupola is raising. The heavenly chorus is above the nave, it can be reached by the stairs made in the nave wall thickness. The cupola wall was decorated in XVIII century with the image of the fourth Evangelists and the cupola frescos in XIX century by Fenczik Kornél. The iconostasis, sanctuary and pulpit were made by Hippó János in 1857.

The sanctuary painting is an exact copy of the cathedral's sanctuary from Satu Mare. The pews were kept and more flags since XIX century. The damages made by the earthquake in 1834 were fixed in 1888. This church is the only Hungarian Greco-catholic church of Oradea bishopric.
