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).
ALL OF OUR MASSES ARE SUSPENDED THROUGH APRIL 3, 2020 AS DECREED BY THE CARDINAL VICAR OF ROME:

For Sunday Mass, we thank: our musicians, Dafrosa Cho and Raimundo Pereira; our Lectors, Joan Lewis, Gabriella Spadaro and Ann Haring; and our Paulist brothers in Washington DC and New York who edited all this together and upload the Mass on the different sites.
Next week we will be Livestreaming our daily Masses on Facebook, beginning at 9:30 AM, Monday through Friday.
A “virtual” Collection Basket will be passed around before and after Mass. To all of our parishioners, alumni and friends, we make an appeal to contribute to our parish as you would if you were attending Mass. We need to pay our salaries, living expenses and ongoing taxes and this has become very difficult. We realize that we are not the only ones in need at this time, and that many of you are suffering with the closures and loss of income. So we appreciate anything you can offer to help. Please use this Paulist link https://www.paulist.org/helprome/ or go to the home page of our website www.stpatricksamericnarome.org and donate through Paypal, or send a bank transfer (bonifico) to our Chiesa di San Patrizio a Villa Ludovisi account at the credem bank: IT35D 03032 03201 01000 0005028. We are incredibly grateful to all of you who have donated so generously thus far. We appreciate this very much.
And let us continue to pray for each other.
