The Mission of the Catholic American Community of St. Patrick’s Church (formerly located at Santa Susanna Church) in Rome:
United by our Catholic faith and English language, we celebrate and live together the faith of Saints Peter and Paul founded in this holy city of Rome.
We welcome those who come to Rome as pilgrims and tourists seeking to grow in their Catholic faith celebrated in language and ways familiar to them.
We reach out to those in our city who depend on others for the compassion that leads to human dignity and opportunity.
We join in ecumenical collaboration with those of other Christian traditions to know and live our gospel faith most fully.
Our new office telephone number is: (+39) 06.8881.8727.
