The first chapel in Detif was built in 1734. The current church was built in the town center, close to the beach, at the beginning of the 19th century. Built on a stone base to protect it from soil humidity, the church was made from coigue and alerce wood and lined with alerce tiles. Due to the scarcity of metals on the islands of Lemuy and Chiloé, wooden rivets were used in place of iron nails.
The church was restored in 1996 and again in 2001. For the second restoration, tiles on the superior part of the facade were replaced by panels.
