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.

You just go! We had 20 people show up last Tuesday (August 7) for tickets for tomorrow's audience, so we need to be clearer. Just be there 2 hours early. The audience will be in the Paul VI Audience Hall or in St. Peter's Square. This is for August 8, 22 and 29 (no audience on August 15.) There have not been tickets printed during August Audiences for many, many years. Just be there early!!!!!!

We still have a few copies of our Jubilee edition (2017) of As Romans Do, our periodic guide for pilgrims to Rome. This 100-page guide to Rome and the Catholic American Community of St. Patrick's Church (San Patrizio a Villa Ludovisi) is a real treasure. The Paulists currently on staff (Fr. Greg Apparcel and soon-to-be Vice Rector Fr. Bernard J. Campbell) and the entire St. Patrick's Community are ready and willing to assist all pilgrims coming to Rome and to do everything to make your visit as fulfilling as possible. We hope that the 2019-2020 edition of As Romans Do will be ready by Christmas 2018 or for the New Year 2019. The Jubilee edition (which still have valuable up-to-date information) gives an overview of what it means to be a pilgrim and if you want a copy, just send Fr. Greg your name and address and he will mail you one. (We do not have an email version.) All we ask is that you consider sending us a donation to help with postage and to support our ministry here in Rome. Please do not request the 2019 edition at this time.
