Church Hours (beginning November 21): Sunday: 8:30 AM to 12 Noon; Monday through Saturday: 4 PM to 7 PM; Plus Thursday: 9 AM to 12:30 PM. Due to the significant drop in our regular collections, we have been forced to limit the hours the church will be open and reduce the hours of our employees. These are very difficult decisions to make, but we have no alternative considering the current financial situation. Here are the required protocols for entering the church.

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.
