Mass Times at Saint Peter’s Basilica

The Catholic Traveler’s Guide to Rome is offered completely free to be sure you have the best pilgrimage experience – and it is only possible because of my generous Patrons. Please consider supporting my work with Patreon or Venmo. Thank you! 🤍

Saint Peter’s Basilica is an actual parish church with Mass celebrated daily for the local community – and the thousands of visitors who happen to drop by throughout the day.

Papal Masses are held on many Holy Days and some special occasions, but Saint Peter’s has a regular Mass schedule with a regular parish community.

If you’d like to go to confession before or after Mass, reconciliation is available in Saint Peter’s Basilica as well.
