English Mass at the Lenten Station Churches

The North American College (NAC) hosted an English Mass at the Station Churches of Rome throughout Lent.

Masses begin at 7 a.m., with the exception of the Ash Wednesday Mass, which begins at 6:45 a.m. In the case of Masses at Saint Mary Major, Saint John Lateran, and Saint Peter’s Basilica, you will need to go through security. This can take a long time with a couple hundred seminarians and priests arriving at the same time. Plan accordingly.

The schedule differs just slightly to the official calendar, so check below carefully for the ***.

Here is the schedule for 2019. The links take you to articles and videos I’ve made for each church.
