According to tradition, the image of the patroness appeared on a triptych found by a fisherman and a small chapel for veneration was built in what was called Daang Lungsod in the 1930s. Every December 18, devotees joined a fluvial procession in time for the fiesta of Our Lady of Remedies. After Odlot was founded, the fluvial procession would make the trip from Odlot to the old chapel in Daang Lungsod and back.
In 1945, an image of Our Lady of Remedies sculpted by Ma Binoy Carabio was given by Anton Meñoria. On May 20, 1980, Odlot chapel became a parish with Fr. Miguel Abangan as the first parish priest. In 1987, the feast day was moved from December 18 to December 14.
In 1998, another image of Our Lady of Remedies created from Minglanilla was donated by Victor Tan. On May 26, 2013, the consecration of the new parish church took place.
Many miracles were attributed to the patroness.
The facade of the church is flanked by recessed church wall (containing a blind rose window with intricate openwork), colonnades, and covered passageways whose roofs are where holy figures are installed; the facade and colonnades spill onto flights of stairs and the churchyard. Neogothic elements are found in the pointed arches of its fenestration, rose windows, and five-level steeple that culminates in a “crowned” spire and cross.
Beyond the church on both sides are rows of holy figures. In the rear portion of the church complex is a three-story edifice with a huge image of Sto. Niño de Cebu.
