The Church located in the former Siechhof district in Sighisoara was probably built in the sixteenth century. Located in the lower city, outside the wall of defense, near the Târnava bank, it was part of a system which included a school, the teacher’s home and a hospital for lepers, which is why it was known as the Church of Lepers. Patients did not have access to the church, Catholic priests officiated for them from the outside pulpit, located on the west side. The pulpit was used until 1684. In the late nineteenth century, with the construction of the railway, the hospital was demolished.
Not long after that, the church became Lutheran. The pipe organ was built in 1865 by Samuel Friedrich Binder. Now the church is used by the Greek-Catholic.
