Our Lady of Peace (Italian: Chiesa di Santa Maria della Pace ai Parioli) is a Roman Catholic church located in the roman district of Pinciano, in Viale Bruno Buozzi. Since 1982 it was erected by Pope John Paul II as the Prelatic Church of the Personal Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei, an institution of the Catholic Church. It contains the mortal remains of Saint Josemaría Escrivá in a casket located beneath the main altar.[1]


On December 31 1959, Saint Josemaría celebrated the first Mass in the church of Our Lady of Peace[2]. After Opus Dei was established as a personal prelature in 1982, this became the Prelatic Church (with a role similar to a cathedral in a diocese)[3].


The crypt of the church holds the Blessed Sacrament Chapel and confessionals. It is also the burial-place of:

  • Blessed Álvaro del Portillo (1914-1994), Saint Josemaría’s first successor at the head of Opus Dei.
  • Most Rev. Javier Echevarría (1932-2016), Blessed Álvaro del Portillo's successor.[4][5]
  • Dora del Hoyo (1914 - 2004), one of the first women members of Opus Dei, and the first assistant numerary member. [6]
  • Carmen Escrivá (1899 - 1957), Saint Josemaría's sister.
