College Chapel

The Chapel of the Pontifical Irish College is dedicated to All the Saints of Ireland whose Feast Day is the 6th November.

The community gathers in this Chapel at dawn for Morning Prayer (lauds) and Eucharist. As evening draws in, the seminarians and priests gather once more for Evening Prayer (vespers), meditation and for Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.

On Sundays, the congregation swells as pilgrims to Rome join with local families for Sunday Mass.

A church is a space that is consecrated for community worship and for private prayer. Here the encounter with the living God takes place and the salvation promised to us is really ours. The ancient belief that the prayer of the Christian community gathered here on earth is one and the same as that of the communion of saints in heaven.
