The education of children and youth was an important preoccupation of the Cenad bishopric

Thus, in 1864 were brought to Timișoara the first nuns of the Sorores Pauperes de Nostra Domina. The first monastery and first school (today the Lyceum squarely to the Banatului Museum) were opened in the Cetate district. The imposing building had 72 rooms and a chapel.

In 1881 were the new monastery and the school opened, and the church of the monastery was built in 1894, in Neo-Romanic style, on the nuns 'expense. The main and the lateral altars were framed by the Tyrolese sculptor, Ferdinand Stufflesser. The church has served and serves even today mainly the Order of the Nuns of Notre-Dame, the masses being celebrated in German and in every Sunday in Bulgarian as well. In 1948 the order had more than 400 nuns, but in 1948 the order was abolished and their properties were confiscated.

In those buildings operate the Bănățean College, the Sârbesc Lyceum and the Casa Studenților. The majority of the nuns have left abroad. After 50 years of Communism, in 1992, the Notre-Dame Order from Timișoara was reestablished and the nuns returned to the town.
