American Catholics at the Church of Santi Apostoli

Santi Apostoli is one of the oldest parish churches in the city dating back to 1075. Just recently the American catholic community moved here and share it with the Italian parish church. This church has great historical significance and its located near a residential area and close enough for students to get a sense of community, meet people they can connect with, and find volunteering opportunities

The church was patron by many aristocratic families and it is believed that Santi Apostoli was one of the most important places to come and worship before the building of the Duomo in the 13th century. The inside of the church leaves a lasting impression on all who visit. From the ceiling that was decorated between the 12th and the 14th century, to the green marble floor.

The American community holds mass every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and welcomes everyone. For more information you can visit their Facebook page, catholics in florence.
