CHURCH IN ROME DEDICATED TO FIRST SUCCESSOR OF ST. PETER

        ROME, 24 (NE) A new temple dedicated to the first successor of the Apostle Peter, St. Linus, was dedicated yesterday in the city of Rome. The dedication ritual of the new parochial church was presided by Cardinal Camillo Ruini, Pope's Vicar for the diocese of Rome.

        After forty years, the more than ten thousand Roman faithful belonging to this parish will now have a parochial temple where to carry out their diverse celebrations. When the parish was built in 1959, the church could not be built, so parishioners had to use one of the rooms in the parish to hold celebrations.

        The Mass and dedication rite presided by Cardinal Ruini were carried out yesterday afternoon. The Italian Cardinal thanked God, together with the faithful, for the blessing that the new temple means for the community.

        The church, that is capable of gathering approximately 500 people seated, was designed by the same architect that projected the parochial complex. It counts with a square from which one can sight the impressive dome of St. Peter's Basilica.
