  • The church has the shape of a large box on a travertine plinth. On the facade there are colorful mosaics that represent important moments of the Christian liturgy. The interior is very particular for the presence of five stylized arches reminiscent of bundles of palm trees that develop from the ground at the top and embrace like a large forest.

  • The modern church, especially considering the age and weight of the historic churches of Rome. However we found interesting the fact of being so off the charts.

  • I will not dwell on historical facts mentioned in other reviews, I will confine myself to my personal taste. This church is out of place in the architectural context of the area, perhaps the most recent façade can give some minimal enthusiasm but the inside is of an austere one, I'd gone too far. I would be curious to see the first draft of this church then refused. Ugly.

  • Impressive modern church, but it is meant to be the Canadian national church as well as a parish church. I have found no evidence of any liturgical activity by, or on behalf of, Canadian visitors or expatriates. Masses in English or French are not being advertised, and the parish website hints at a studied lack of interest on the part of the church's administrators. Mass (in Italian) times are: Weekdays 7:00, 8:30, 18:30; Sundays and Solemnities 9:00, 10:30, 12:00 (not summer), 19:30.
  • It's worth visiting here
  • Sacramentchurch, to this day led by Father Maurizio, built in the 1960s has become famous for being the first church in Italy with the neocatecumenal path. Pilgrims come from all over the world to visit where 50 years ago Kiko Arguello made the first catechs.

  • A neo-Gothic church very inspiring towards spirituality. To see

  • A modern church, but after all evocative, both in the central hall and for the numerous rooms used by the Neocatecumenal Way with the characteristic style of the furnishings. There is also a large original icon of Kiko Arguello dating back to the 1970s
