It was originally built as a Russian Orthodox Church in 1895, with an intention to be used as a military Orthodox church of Kaunas Fortress. During the World War I, the Kaunas Fortress fell and the bells of the church were cut down and transported to Germany.

The church reopened in 1919 as a Roman-Catholic Church and then, during the Soviet Era, was used as an art gallery up until the fall of the Soviet Union, when it continued to function as a church.
