"American visitors are sometimes surprised to find a priest at a cocktail party attired in his Roman clerical garb. But we clergymen were required by the laws of the Roman Vicariate to wear our cassocks at such times. The Rome cocktail party often was the place to make contact with the non-Catholic who was interested in the Church."
-Fr. James Cunningham, 1950s pastor of Santa Susanna's.
