About Us

We are a member of the Diocese in Europe. Our church, St Leonard's, is of medieval origin and kindly loaned to us by the Roman Catholic Bishop of Assisi. The only regular services held in the church are for the weekly Anglican Eucharist.

We work very closely with the Society of St Francis (SSF). The SSF provide either a First Order brother or a Third Order priest to act as a Priest in Charge. The priest is rotated on a monthly basis. During the COVID close down, the SSF provide a 'virtual priest' who hold a fortnightly service. If you want to attend the zoom service, please contact one of the church wardens.   

The core congregation is not large. However, we believe our role is to provide spiritual support and a place to worship for all pilgrims and visitors to Assisi. Therefore, our congregations are very variable in size and origin.

All are welcome to attend the services, and those who are baptised and communicants in their own Christian and Trinitarian denominations are welcome to receive Holy Communion.  Our weekly eucharist is on Sundays at 11:00am for one hour.  There are other services and prayers so please check the SERVICES AND EVENTS on this web site for full details.

Whilst it is not possible to carry out wedding services, due to Italian laws requiring a civil wedding, we can provide Matrimonial Blessings within our church or other external locations.

The church is small but the welcome is BIG!!!

We usually provide a brief history of the Church following the service.
