SNS in the Past
Since 1997, in early December, close to the feast of St. Nicholas, the Patron Saint of the Poor and Homeless, the Saint Nicholas Serata for Charity was held as a traditional, annual fundraising event of the Saint Patrick's American Community of Rome (former Santa Susanna).
An elegant gala dinner dance held at Marymount International School, with raffle prizes, silent and live auctions, great food and drinks, entertaining music and dance, and in the company of the church’s community and guests, all in good spirit, ensured that the tradition was maintained year after year.
However, in 2020 and 2021, due to COVID restrictions, the event could not be held 'in person'. Instead it became a Virtual Fundraising Event to keep the warm spirit of ‘giving’ of past SNS events truly alive. But since 2022 the event is in presence again!
We captured these past events in some photos, you'll see below.
