After the ecclesiastical approval of the apparitions of Amsterdam in 2002, Archbishop Bruno Gamberini, who, at the time, was the bishop of the diocese of Campinas, expressed his desire to build a parish church or shrine dedicated to the Lady of All Nations.

Thanks to donations from Germany and the Netherlands, the construction of a parish church accommodating 800 people was able to begin in September of 2003.

On May 31, 2004, Bishop Dom Bruno placed and consecrated a memorial stone. Fr. Peter de Waard, a Dutch priest, spoke about the prayer of The Lady of All Nations at a National Day of Prayer there, and it was shortly thereafter that the bishop, on June 16, 2004, entrusted the construction of this church to him.

Fr. Peter de Waard S.M.M. has been the parish priest of the new church of The Lady of All Nations in Atibaia since January 1, 2008.
