The Chapel of St Augustine 


The chapel, in which the blessed sacrament is reserved, is the heart of the Anglican Centre. Morning and Evening Prayer are said daily during the week and a Eucharist is celebrated every Tuesday at 12:45. Dedicated to St Augustine, it reminds us of the common heritage of Canterbury and Rome. 

The Tuesday Eucharist has a core community, drawn from the two Anglican / Episcopal churches in Rome and our friends from other denominations. We are also joined, each week, by pilgrims and tourists from around the world. This is a wonderful occasion allowing us to meet, pray with, (and then have prosecco with) a huge variety of people. 

0J2A5115-1The services follow the liturgical principles of the Anglican Communion and we are accountable to the Archbishop of Canterbury for our rites. Our vision is to have an accessible chapel for the whole range of the Communion. For this reason our liturgies are simple, relatively short and great care is taken with the preaching as well as a diversity of presidents, including women. The Lord’s Prayer is usually offered as an opportunity to use one’s mother tongue. Attendees are invited to receive a blessing at the time of the administration of communion if they prefer.

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 people of other denominations socially and inviting their participation in Anglican worship, bonds of affection are developed.
