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.

Archbishop David Moxon KNZM, The Archbishop of Canterbury’s representative to the Holy See and former Director of the Anglican Centre in Rome wrote a testimony in late 2016 regarding Caravita on the celebration of the 50th Anniversay of the Anglican Centre.
