Formation for Young People
- Beginning 05 Mar | 40 Acts of Generosity for Lent!
40 Acts of Generosity for Lent!
On Sunday March 5th, we are starting a 5-week Lenten study exploring how we can do creative,
simple and yet meaningful acts of kindness every day
to help make our world a more generous place.
This program is designed for kids (and their families!)
so will include lots of storytelling, stickers, and songs.
Anyone who is interested and would like to join us
for some creative, hands-on learning this Lent is most welcome!
March 5, 12, 19, 26 & April 2, from 12:00-1:00pm.
Please contact Hilary Keachie for more details!
Excursions in Rome for Young People
This is a series of Christian formation events for children and youth (and their families) offered by St. Paul’s Within the Walls Episcopal Church.
The activities will take place on Saturdays, about once a month, at different sites around the city of Rome. The Eternal City is associated with many of God’s saints throughout history and there are many sacred spaces within and beyond the ancient walls that will provide locations for participants to learn and grow in faith.
For more information call the Parish Office at 06 4883339 or send an email.
- 08 Apr | Excursion: Catacombs of S. Callisto
Saturday, April 8th, at 10:30
The catacombs of St. Callixtus are among the greatest and most important of Rome. They originated about the middle of the second century and are part of a cemeterial complex. In it were buried tens of martyrs, 16 popes and very many Christians.
They are named after the deacon Callixtus who, at the beginning of the third century, was appointed by pope Zephyrinus as the administrator of the cemetery and so the catacombs of St. Callixtus became the official cemetery of the Church of Rome.
In the open area are two small basilicas with three apses, known as the “Trichorae”. In the Eastern one were perhaps laid to rest pope Zephyrinus and the young martyr of the Eucharist, St. Tarcisius. The underground cemetery includes several areas. The Crypts of Lucina and the area of the Popes and of St.Cecilia are the most ancient areas.
The cost per person for the guided tour is EUR 8.
After the tour we will have lunch together in a local trattoria.
Meeting point: We will meet at the San Callisto Bus Stop at 10:00.
From the stop Circo Massimo (metro B): Exit from the station Circo Massimo or from the station Terme di Caracalla / Porta Capena and take bus 118 (direction Villa Dei Quintili) to the stop Catacombs of San Callisto (the third stop after Quo Vadis, n. 4 on the map).
