St. GabinusVisiting Rome

If you visiting Rome, we invite you to come and see the Church of Santa Susanna, in easy walking distance from the Piazza della Repubblica, the Via Veneto and the St. Regis Grand Hotel. The Church is open every day from 9 to 12 Noon and again from 4 to 7 PM. Rome churches are closed in the afternoon. Come visit us and see our beautiful frescos.

Using the Button Bar, examine some of our suggestions for visitors. There are some tips for tourists, most especially what to do if your wallet or purse is stolen. We tell you how to use public phones and how to work through the complex system of public transportation. We also show you how to shop and dine like a veteran Roman. There are even suggestions for how to arrange a day tour out of the city to Assisi, Pompeii or Florence. We hope you enjoy this part of our site.

The brand new Jubilee of Mercy edition of As Romans Do will be available for mailing beginning November 15, 2015. 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.
