The Church was founded in 1630 by the Count of Linhares, Viceroy Dom Miguel de Noronha. The decision to build the church was taken soon after the fort was completed. The reason to build the church was so that the enemies could not get a close by outpost near the fort. The festival of St. Lawrence is celebrated every year at the end of the monsoon season by sand bar clearing hence making the ships navigable for next season.
