It is the church of the Piarist monks' order, monks who came to Timișoara in 1788 and received the church of the Franciscan monks and the Saint Ioan Nepomuc Church built between 1733-1736 in the place of an old mosque, which was constructed on a medieval Catholic church.

The Piarists built in 1909 a new church and a school. The old church was overtaken by the municipality and demolished in 1911, from its crypt being moved 261 skeletons. It was identified the tomb of Johanna von Honrath, the wife of Karl Grath, the commander of the fortress. Johanna von Grath was the first love of Beethoven. This church has neo-Byzantine, Hungarian and Baroque elements from the old Franciscan church. The Piarists continued to hustle after 1948 as well, because it was considered the students' church. Here lived and died in 2005 the country's last Piarist, P. Francisc Valo O. Sch. P. Since then the church has been overtaken by the priests of the Romano-Catholic Gherhardinum Theological Lyceum.
