We welcome pilgrims from all faiths and all walks of life
The Caravita Community is an international, English-speaking assembly of Catholic Christians who come together to celebrate the Eucharist every Sunday at the Oratory of San Francesco Saverio “del Caravita”. Our 17th century church lies in the heart of historical Rome.
Members of our congregation include religious, diplomats, UN employees, pilgrims, and students at pontifical universities. Along with members of the congregation, we welcome those who have been away from the Church and those who are curious about what the Catholic faith has to offer.
In October 2017 Caravita welcomed the new representative of the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Holy See, Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi and his wife Matilda. We thank his predecessor, Archbishop David Moxon KNZM for his presence and friendship during his time in Rome. This was expressed in an article written by Fr. Keith Pecklers for the Anglican Centre. Archbishop Moxon wrote a testimony in late 2016 regarding Caravita on the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Anglican Centre. To read that testimony please click here.
