  • Santa Susanna is the official American Catholic church in Rome and we happened to be in the area and dropped by. Run by the Paulist Fathers from the United States since 1922 with all services conducte...  more »
  • The façade of Santa Susanna (considered the first example of Baroque architecture) is characterized by the gradual advance toward the outside of the façade in its central part. The Interior has a nave with a side chapel near the balustrade of the presbytery. The walls are completely painted with scenes from the life of Santa Susanna by Baldassare Croce in 1595. Interesting the pipe organ (modern)

  • +JMJ. During my almost annual pilgrimage to Rome, I stopped in to pick up tickets to attend the Papal Audience and would sometime participate in the Holy Mass. Not because it was offered in American English, but because it was the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, another opportunity to hear the Word of God and to receive Jesus, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity through the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. Also, due to my interest to interact with others who were doing what I wanted to do, live in Rome, I spent one evening in St Susanna's library engaged in a Bible study with seminarians and other pilgrims (unknown to myself.) It was a meaningful and insightful, though brief, study. Also, any visit I make to the Churches of Rome are not so much to study the architecture as to admire it and the art and spirituality enhancing, images and statues therein. St Susanna has much to admire with the addition of an excavated area underneath the Church exposed for history-minded pilgrims and tourists. It is a house of worship and prayer well worth a visit.
  • This is no longer the American national church. The church was closed in 2013 "for repairs", but no work seems to be going on. As from August 2017, the American expatriate community is permanently worshipping in San Patrizio. Relationships between the Cistercian nuns, who own the church, and the Paulist Fathers, who minister to the expatriates, broke down completely.
  • Very nice exterior as the average Roman churches.
  • Beautiful looking church located in Piazza Di San Bernardo.
  • so beautiful~~~
