Despite the fierce oppression faced by Christians of Ebukuro in 1873, the year when the edict banning Christianity was abolished, Father Bourelle led and supported the construction of this church in 1882. Until it burned down in 2007, it was the oldest wooden church with a ribvault ceiling in Goto. With all of Japan's support, the church was rebuilt. It was completed and consecrated in May of 2010.

Churches are very important places of prayer for their followers. When observing churches, please follow proper etiquette such that everyone can feel comfortable in the churches. A guide for church etiquette can be found here.
