Welcome all guests as Christ


We are Caravita

Sunday Mass at 11:00 in English

"Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ, for He is going to say, 'I came as a guest, and you received Me' (Matt. 25:35). And to all let due honor be shown, especially to the domestics of the faith and to pilgrims... In the salutation of all guests, whether arriving or departing, let all humility be shown." (Rule of Saint Benedict, §53)

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 welcomes the new representative of the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Holy See, Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi and his wife Matilda.  For more information, please click here.

We thank his predecessor, Archbishop David Moxon KNZM for his presence and friendship during the last four years.  This was expressed in an article written by Fr. Keith Pecklers for the Anglican Centre and can be found here.   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.
