In the late 17th century the Austrian troops arrived to Sibiu also brought with them some worthy representatives of Catholicism, the Jesuit monks. The Austrian civil servants and dignitaries set their residences in the city’s Large Square and formed a small catholic community. Their presence in the city and the free manifestation of faith implied the building of a catholic church. The edifice was consecrated in 1733 and in 1739 they also inaugurated the Jesuit Convent, which is nowadays the parish house.
The church is remarkable due to its early Viennese baroque style, with simple lines at the exterior and a richly decorated interior.

When they built the church, the Jesuit monks also erected a statue of St. Nepomuk right in the Large Square, In 1948 the statue was removed from the square by the communists and today it may be admired in the churchyard.
The clock with its two discs, one facing the Small Square and the other one facing the Large Square was installed in 1838.
Today the church holds religious services in Romanian, Hungarian and German.
