The construction of the church  was completed in 1566 .
It was in this church in August 1677 that the Patron of Goa, St. Joseph Vaz, wrote his famed "Letter of Bondage" wherein he dedicated his life to Mother Mary (see copy / pic below)
In 1834 a mysterious fire destroyed the Church and only  facade is left standing.
Protected Monument
The same also can be seen from Zuari bridge


Feast 16.1.2018
There were 6 bishops, about 80 priests concelebrated feast Mass, over 100 brothers and sisters and thousands of devotees
Bishop Peter Machado of Belgaum, Bishop Alwyn Baretto of Sindhudurg, Bishop Derek Fernandes of Karwar, Bishop Theodore Mascarenhas of Ranchi, Bishop Lumen Monteiro of Agartala and   main celebrant was our Archbishop Filipe Neri Ferrao.
What really  missing was feast brass band or Festa Muzg and Pursao (Procession)
