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.
