The Mission of the Catholic American Community of St. Patrick’s 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.
All of our Masses are at the St. Patrick's Church/Chiesa di San Patrizio, Via Boncompagni, N. 31 (00187 Rome, Italy).
Church Hours: Sunday: 8:30 AM to 12 Noon; Monday through Saturday: 4 PM to 7 PM; Plus Thursday: 9 AM to 12:30 PM. Mass schedule: Monday - Friday at 6:00 PM, Saturday Vigil at 6:00 PM and Sunday morning at 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM. Several Masses are livestreamedon Facebook and later posted on YouTube. Here are the required protocols
