According to tradition, the basilica was consecrated circa 325 to house the relics of the Passion of Jesus Christ brought to Rome from the Holy Land by Empress St. Helena, mother of Roman Emperor Constantine I. At that time, the Basilica's floor was covered with soil from Jerusalem, thus acquiring the title in Hierusalem; it is not dedicated to the Holy Cross which is in Jerusalem, but the Basilica itself is "in Jerusalem" in the sense that a "piece" of Jerusalem was moved to Rome for its foundation. The most recent Cardinal Priest of the Titulus S. Crucis in Hierusalem was Juan José Omella, since 28 June 2017.

A unique parish in a little town of Flaminio. It is a few meters to the modern art museum MAXXI.
According to the Diocese, Mass is celebrated: Weekdays 9:00, 10:30, 18:30; Sundays and Solemnities 8:00, 9:00 (not summer), 10:30, 12:00 (not summer), 19:00. The church was founded in 1913, when Pope St Pius X erected the parish of "Santa Croce" in celebration of the 16th centenary of the Edict of Milan, the edict of tolerance by Emperor Constantine in 313 which legalised the Christian religion in the Roman Empire. It was built in the style of a Roman basilica by Aristide Leonori, and papal patronage ensured a building of the highest quality. Very well worth visiting.
