Welcome to the Church of Santa Susanna in Rome Italy!
We are many things: a vibrant American parish, a center for pilgrims, an ancient Roman church, and a home away from home, whether you are a visitor, a pilgrim or a resident of Rome!
Due to the temporary closure of Santa Susanna Church, here is our New Temporary Mass schedule at local Churches:
Saturday, 5:45 PM and Sunday 9:00 AM at the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli e Martiri.(click here for directions).
Sunday, 10:00 AM, at the Basilica of San Camillo de Lellis. (click here for directions)
Monday through Friday at 7:00 PM at San Camillo de Lellis. (click here for directions)
Saturday night, 5:45 PM, Vigil Mass at in the Certosini Chapel behind the Sacristy in Santa Maria degli Angeli e Martiri in the Piazza della Repubblica. (click here for directions). This is the large Basilica connected to the Baths of Diocletian, which Michelangelo designed. The Piazza della Repubblica has a beautiful fountain in its center, and is a subway stop for Line A. This Church is two blocks down from Santa Susanna, on the way to Stazione Termini, the main train station.
Sunday morning, 9 AM Mass, also at Santa Maria degli Angeli e Martiri at the Main Altar.
Sunday morning, 10 AM Mass at San Camillo De Lellis on Via Piemonte and Via
Sallustiana, down the street from the US Embassy. (click here for directions). If you head two blocks
down Via XX Settembre toward Porta Pia, and turn left on Via Antonio
Salandra, which is the street on which the Paulists live, you will continue
down as the street curves right and becomes Via Piemonte. San Camillo is
right there, just past the 910 bus stop.
Santa Susanna English-Language Library is OPEN, though the Church is closed:

We are delighted that you came to visit us today! The buttons (on the upper left column) will provide a great deal of interesting information. So feel free to explore our website!! We have recently moved our Quick Links above, so that it will make finding things much easier.

As Romans Do 2012 is still available for mailing (not by email however). This 144 page guide to Rome and Santa Susanna is a real treasure. It is dedicated to the Alumni of Santa Susanna Church and is filled with historical photos from our archives, as well as current photos from the past three years. Not only is it a parish handbook, it is also an excellent guide to visitors, pilgrims and new residents coming to Rome. It makes all kinds of recommendations for what to see and do, and provides opening times and costs for various museums and other places of interest. It also includes 8 pages of Tips on getting around the city while you are here. 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. All we ask is that you consider sending us a donation to help us continue our ministry here at Santa Susanna.
WEEKLY PARISH NEWSLETTER (for Sunday, December 7 and 8, 2013):
Dear Parishioners, Friends, Alumni and All Supporters of the St. Nicholas Serata,
We are just six days away from the biggest and best St. Nicholas Charity Serata ever. We do have about 25 tickets left, but cannot sell any after Wednesday, December 4, at 12 noon, and we may sell out before that. For those of you who have already bought tickets, remember that the St. Nicholas Serata is Saturday night, December 7, from 7 PM to 1 AM at Marymount International School, on Via Villa di Lauchli, 180, down the street from the Piazza di Giouchi Delfici. If you neglected to tell us with whom you wish to sit for dinner, please send me an email no later than Tuesday morning. Because of the size of the tables, we cannot accommodate everyone's request, but we will try. No matter where you will be sitting, it will be with some of the most wonderful people in the world.
If you have auction items and have not yet given them to us, please bring them to the Paulist Rectory no later than 9 PM on Thursday night or to Marymount between 4 and 10 PM Friday night. You can also give them to me at Marymount on Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 8 and 9 AM in the dining hall. Please, please, please do not bring them on Saturday day or night, as we need the time to prepare the auction rooms. If there is an emergency or urgent question, send me an email if it is before Friday. From Friday morning on, I will not have email access, so send me an SMS at 347.37.9025, but only if it is an emergency. If you have to cancel or if you change the name of your guest, please let me know right away. If it is after Tuesday, December 3, at midnight, we will not be able to give you a refund. Remember that we need the exact names of every guest for security, as well as for the place card settings nad table arrangements. Again, I will be at Marymount on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, from 8 to 9 in the dining hall, as well as on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday and Sunday.
You can still bring us your Raffle ticket stubs for the Weekends in London, Paris and Venice on the night of the Serata, but preferably before that. You can drop them off at the Paulist portiere or the rectory before 12 noon on Saturday or during the week. In addition that night we are raffling off an iPhone 5S and an iPad Air ONLY for those who are attending the Serata itself. We still need more help to decorate, greet, or set up on Friday evening 6 to 10 PM or Saturday morning 9 AM to 2 PM, adults only please. We also need cleaning up on Sunday, from 8 Am up until the 11 AM Mass and for an hour after Mass, so that we can put the Grand Ballroom back in proper order for school on Monday. If you have questions about anything other than the Serata, you can also contact Rosanna at 06.4201.4554.
This weekend, we will follow the Roman calendar and celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. Fr. John Maher presides at the Saturday 5.45 PM and the Sunday 9 AM Masses at Santa Maria, and Fr. Clyde Phillips at the 10 at San Camillo. Fr. Steve celebrates the 11 AM Mass in the Marymount Chapel, with the Johnston and O'Connor Families providing the hospitality. In the US, when December 8 falls on a Sunday, this Solemnity is moved to Monday, so we will also celebrate it on Monday, at 7 PM at San Camillo for visiting Americans. Religious Education is December 14, and we need many more volunteers for our monthly day at Caritas on December 21. Contact Marjie, mmontavon at libero.it. Hopefully I will see you all at the Serata. Ciao for now, Father Greg
