Patron Privileges

Patrons come from all over the world, representing various religious backgrounds and bringing different experiences to the Patrons Chapters throughout North America and Europe. The Chapters meet regularly, sponsor dinners and social events to plan and raise funds for restorations, and organize chapter trips to the Vatican Museums to see the results of their efforts. When Patrons come to Rome, they experienced unrivalled access into Vatican City. This is our way of expressing our sincere gratitude to those who make it all possible.
