The Old Roman is an online newsletter, bulletin, journal and magazine for traditional Old Romans, faithful Catholics to the perennial liturgy and customs of the Latin Rite and orthodox apostolic teaching. A central point of news, views and information to assist Old Romans everywhere to live their faith confidently in a troubled world.

The Old Roman is the free weekly on-line review in service of orthodox Old Roman missions and ministries around the world. News, Events, Personalities, Catholic teaching, Letters, Features, Old Roman history, news from chapels and missions, on-line devotions & Mass. 

Ultimately descended from the early Christians who brought the Gospel to Britain via the Roman Empire and the subsequent efforts of the missionary Britons who converted the northern territories of Europe to the Christian and Catholic Faith. Old Romans preserve today the orthodox and apostolic faith of the early Church and Patristic Councils. Still practising the customs and traditions that raised generations of Saints, Old Romans everywhere bear testimony to the allure of authentic doctrine and centuries of lived Christianity. Wherever Old Romans are, there is the authentic Church of Christ!

The timetable of Masses around the world, is invaluable. It is possible to take part in a Mass at almost any hour of the day or night. (An absolute Godsend to those who suffer insomnia.).
