Confessions: After Masses the weekend of 1 / 2 April (Saturday evening, Sunday morning & evening) as we celebrated for the close of the Year of Mercy

WELCOME to the International Parish, home of the English-speaking Catholic community in Luxembourg. The parish was established over 50 years ago as part of 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.
We are now the International Parish.

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.  God’s house is our house too, and there is always room to enter and to feel at home.
