The Mission of the Santa Susanna Catholic American
Community 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 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.
A brand new Jubilee of Mercy edition of As Romans Do, our periodic guide for pilgrims to Rome, became available in December, 2015, to coincide with the beginning of the Extraordinary Jubilee called by Pope Francis. This 100-page guide to Rome, the Holy Year and the Catholic American Community of Santa Susanna is a real treasure. The Paulists currently on staff (Fr. Greg Apparcel and Fr. Steve Bossi) and the entire Santa Susanna Community are ready and willing to assist all pilgrims coming to Rome this coming year (and beyond) and to do everything to make your pilgrimage as fulfilling as possible. This edition of As Romans Do is dedicated to all of you who seek to deepen and enrich your faith during the Holy Year. It makes many and varied recommendations for what to see and do, provides opening times and costs for museums and other places of interest, and gives an overview of the Jubilee of Mercy and what it means to be a pilgrim. We would be happy to mail you a copy of this book. Please send Fr. Greg your name and address and we will mail you a copy. (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 at Santa Susanna.
