The first mention of the church in the village comes from 1390, when the vicar of the Archbishop of Esztergom Leonard de Pensauro mentions the parish of Šenkvice - SANKAWYCH. Its origin is expected around 1350. The absence of reports about the village between 1462 and 1557 confirms the assumptions about leaving the area. New settlers from the vicinity of the Croatian Kostajnice, expelled by the Turkish invasions, began to build a new, larger church on the ruins of the old one. Subsequently, Šenkvice became a parish in 1584. The first priest of the new parish was probably Matej Sosič.
