Welcome to the online home of the English-speaking Catholic community in Luxembourg — part of the International Parish, established over 50 years ago as the Paroisse Européenne to serve the various language groups in Luxembourg. Our community is made up of a rich mix of nationalities, with our shared faith and English as a common language bringing us together. If you’re new to Luxembourg, or paying a visit, we hope you will join us for Mass, and any of our advertised events. Please introduce yourself so we can welcome you in person. We believe that God’s house is our house too, and there is always room for more to enter, and to feel at home.
Saturday Vigil Mass (for Sunday) is at : 7pm at the Redemptorist church of St Alphonse, Rue des Capucins, in the centre of Luxembourg city.
Sunday Mass is at 11:15, also in the church of St Alphonse. This Mass is our main family Mass, with children’s liturgy. Other Masses and events are announced here on the website.
Baptisms If you would like to have your child baptised, please contact Fr Ed and we can discuss the arrangements. We also have programmes for Confirmation, and First Holy Communion: follow the links for details.
Getting married is one of the most life-changing experiences you will ever have. We can help you prepare, whether you are intending to be married here in Luxembourg or elsewhere. Because there are various administrative aspects to marriage (required by both civil and church authorities), at least six months notice is usually needed. The first step is to contact Fr Ed, the parish priest, and he will guide you through the process.
It’s never too late to become a Catholic if you are not already a member of the church. If you are definitely interested, or simply want to know more without committing yourself, please don’t hesitate to have a word.
Ed Hone CSsR, Chaplain to the English-speaking community
