The Jubilee Church, also known as Church of God the Merciful Father, is a church and community center in Tor Tre Teste in Rome. The Church serves eight thousand residents of the Tor Tre Teste area and was meant to socially "revive" Tor Tre Teste.


The Church was built to leave a tangible sign in the Jubilee year 2000, It was designed by American architect Richard Meier, and opened in 2003 as one of the Churches of the Jubilee. This was a project announced by the Diocese in 1995, the aim being to build fifty new churches in Rome's suburbs as a celebration of the Holy Year of 2000. This particular church, which includes a community centre, has a spectacular post-modernist design which has made it famous, and is the only modern church in the Roman suburbs which has become a tourist attraction in its own right.
