The parish was erected July 4, 1709 with the decree of the Cardinal Vicar Gaspare Carpegna ‘De cuiuslibet statutory’. Comes from the integration of two churches from different periods and the subsequent massive restructuring ordered by Pope Honorius III in the thirteenth century. The primitive church was erected by the Emperor Constantine in the fourth century over the tomb of martireLorenzo, a victim of the persecution of Valerian in 258. It also houses the remains of St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr.

The area where today stands the Villa Mercede was part until the end of the 800, a large area planted with vines vineyard called Zampillone, extending the walls up to the Verano.

In 1913, when the property was headed to the family Reinach and Theresa Lemoine, was constructed a building of considerable size called ‘La Villetta’. There is little information about the owners: the De Reinach owned a lot of land outside the Porta Tiburtina while Mrs. Lemoine was a religious woman who, along with other wealthy gentleman, bought the land in 1907 by the Bank of Italy and allocated to charity. Indeed, in 1931 gave way to the nearby Institute of the Sisters helpers throughout the property with the building of the ‘house’ and the church of St. Mary Help of Christians then under construction, designed by the architect.
