Sunday, 20 April:  Join us at the Pincio Hill terrace at 7:oo AM on Resurrection Sunday  (from Piazza del Popolo you can look up and see the terrace overlooking the piazza).  This is always a wonderful time together as we celebrate the resurrection of Christ in a beautiful setting overlooking Rome at sunrise.
