Collegium Liberianum

The Collegium Liberianum was founded in 1995 within the Papal Basilica of Saint Mary Major, with the approval of the then Cardinal Archpriest, Ugo Poletti.

The Association is made up of lay people who volunteer their services in the Basilica during Liturgical celebrations, especially during Solemnities. In addition to its ecclesial service, throughout the year, the Association promotes other activities for the spiritual, personal and community growth of each associated member.

Relationships among the members of the Association are based on sincere friendship and mutual respect to ensure that their service is carried out under the maternal gaze of Mary, Salus Populi Romani.
