In the atumn of 1741 many Bulgarians fled and settled in Viga. Half a century later their community reached a number of 5000 individuals to which the church and monastery built in 1749 proved to be too small. They started to build the present church around 1890. The plan was carried out by the Viennese Reiter Eduard, the construction was led by Antony Toma and Hostalek Carol.

In 1891 the church has already been covered, and the two towers have been standing. It was consecrated in the summer of 1892. The seize is astonishing: the towers rise 65m high, the church is 36 m high, 63m long and 32m wide.

The church houses 9 altars, decorated with 43 wooden statues. The statues were made in József Rungaldier' tyrolese workshop, who also provided the carved chandeliers. The 52 wooden benches were manufactured in Szeged. The lead glass window pains were made by János Kriszter from Budapest. The right tower houses the largest bell of the church. This weighs 330 kg. The 32-register organ was built by master Lipót Wegestein. (1914).
