The Centre provides a welcoming and hospitable point of reference for Anglicans who visit Rome, helping tourists become pilgrims. It provides advice about the best way to access affordable accommodation. It facilitates contacts with relevant departments and individuals in the Vatican, and in the many academic institutions in the city.
The Chapel, in which the Blessed Sacrament is reserved, is at the heart of the Anglican Centre. Here every Tuesday (except in August and between Christmas and Epiphany) at 12.45 pm the Eucharist is celebrated. The congregation is a microcosm of Christianity: Anglicans from around the world, Lutherans, Methodists, Roman Catholics, high church, low church, broad church, no church, all gather round the table of God's love to be renewed. Visitors are always welcome.
The Eucharist is followed by a sociable lunch. This is just part of the important ministry of hospitality which the Centre undertakes in Rome. By welcoming Roman Catholics socially and inviting their participation in Anglican worship, bonds of affection are developed.
There are no celebrations of the Eucharist, or lunch, on Tuesdays in August and between Christmas and Epiphany.(Author: )
