This Church was built by Count Antoine Talamas for the Maronite community which came to Jaffa with the rich contractor and owner of the street bearing his nqame : Iskandar Awad. He built buildings all along the street. All his workers were maronites from a Beirut suburb. For this donation to the Maronite Community, the Pope of Rome gave him the title of Count.
This church stands in Saknet el Hreish, facing the 3azar house.
