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! Masses in English are Monday through Saturday at 6:00 PM and Sunday morning at 9 and 10.30 AM. To see our full Liturgy schedule, click Here: Full Mass times

(If you are going to use an express mail service, please do not use the US Postal Express Service or US Postal Registered Mail.

Santa Susanna is a beautiful and historic place of worship, with a thriving community. Your support will help us keep it that way. Thank you for your donation!
TICKETS FOR PAPAL AUDIENCES:
We are happy to help you obtain tickets for the Wednesday General Audiences, at 10:30 AM. Because of the deluge of requests we have been receiving, we are slower than usual to respond, so please be patient. It has been confirmed that there will be Papal Audiences on the four Wednesdays of June: 5, 12, 19 and 26. HOWEVER, THERE WILL BE NO AUDIENCES AT ALL IN JULY. There will be General Audiences in St. Peter's Square on August 7, 14, 21 and 28, but tickets are not needed. Just go early! The ticket system will begin again for the audiences in September. Please note that we are NOT able to provide tickets for the Papal Masses.

As Romans Do 2010-2012 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, June 23, 2013):
Dear Santa Susanna Parishioners, Friends, Alumni and Visitors,
Greetings from bright hot and sun drenched Roma. As far as I am concerned, summer has officially begun. Bring out the electric fans, the ice cubes and the books you have been putting off reading. In the meantime, classes are nearly over, vacations are being planned, and sadly, some folks have already packed out for their new adventures in faraway lands. There have already been some fond and difficult goodbyes to some truly wonderful people. The good news is that we are still connected here to many, many families and individuals who keep in touch and even come back to visit when you least expect it. Once you are settled, please send me your new address, so I can send you the latest Alumni Newsletter.
This weekend we celebrate the Twelfth Sunday of Ordinary time. Fr. John Maher is the celebrant for the Saturday 6 PM Mass, Fr. Clyde presides at the Sunday 9, and I will celebrate the 10.30 AM Mass. Our Summer Solstice Bake Sale follows the 10.30 Mass and we encourage all of you to bring your best bake treats. Last Sunday was the last 11 AM Mass in the Marymount Chapel until September 15, so we hope to see everyone at Santa Susanna Church itself throughout the next three months when you are in Rome.
On Saturday, June 29, we celebrate the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, both a religious and civil Roman Holiday, with our special Mass at 10:30 AM. And our traditional U.S. Independence Day Mass will be on Thursday, July 5, at 6 PM, with special music and prayers.
Information regarding our Family Based Religious Education Program for 2013 and 2014 can be found by clicking here. Applications and information letters will be available on, but not before, July 1, only by email. The interview schedule with children and parents in the sacramental classes for both parishioners and non parishioners will not begin until August 1.
Among our special guests at Santa Susanna this month and next are Paulist seminarian Jimmy Hsu, who will be attending the Atonement Friars Ecumenical Workshop for the next three weeks, AND Fr. Paul Robichaud and Msgr. George Dobes, who will be assisting me during July.
Before taking a break and preparing for the Youth Day celebrations in Brazil, Pope Francis will have his last Wednesday audience on June 26. After that, the next audience will be August 7. Tickets are necessary for the audiences, except for the four audiences in August, all of which will be in the Piazza San Pietro.
I hope to see all of you at Mass at Santa Susanna this weekend. Until then, stay cool, hydrated and peaceful as we begin the Summer Season of 2013. Ciao for now, Father Greg
