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 or go to the home page of our website 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.

To make donations to St. Patrick's American Community in Rome, you can click on the secure PayPal/Credit card "DONATE" link below. If you need a tax credit letter, it is best not to use PayPal "DONATE", but make your donations by checks made out to “Paulist Fathers”, a US entity, and Fr. Greg can issue a letter for your taxes. You can mail this check or you can give US dollars in person. We hope this inconvenience won't discourage you from donating to the St. Patrick's American Community as we are much in need of your support.
