On the 1st of May, Memorial of St Joseph the Worker, and the festa del lavoro here in Italy, the Irish College community hosted approximately four hundred guests as well as volunteers for Mass followed by lunch. Fr Roberto Cherubini, a member of the Comunità di Sant’Egidio, and a friend of the Irish College over many years, was the chief celebrant of the Mass.

This time of prayer and shared meal has become a well-established annual occasion on the Irish College Calendar. It is an opportunity for us, seminarians and priests, to minister alongside the members of the Comunità di Sant’Egidio here in Rome.

All of the Irish seminarians at the College complete at least one pastoral placement with the Comunità during their time of formation in the city.
