The church of St Alphonse has been closed for three weeks due to subsidence, caused by the recent heatwave. We are awaiting a long-term prognosis — what action needs to be taken with the tiled floor of the church. We have received news that the left-hand aisle of the church (where the side altar and tabernacle are located) may now be used for Masses. This means that the French and German Masses will once more be celebrated in the church; obviously, this side aisle is wholly inadequate for our English-speaking Masses. So our provisional arrangements continue:
Weekend Masses —
Saturday 24th August 19:00 Eglise St Michel, centre ville
Sunday 25th August 11:30 Eglise St Joseph, Limpertsberg
Sunday 25 August 19:00 Eglise St Michel, centre ville
Please pass on the news!
We will search for a longer-term solution, depending how the situation at St Alphonse develops, but in the meantime please check this website on a weekly basis.
Weekday Masses are once again being celebrated in the side aisle of St Alphonse, entry via the courtyard/parking of the church.
Apologies for any inconvenience — we are doing our best to keep things running as near to normal as possible. Updates will be made as they become available, both via catholic.lu and subscriber email updates.
All meetings booked for the garden meeting room are cancelled — please contact the parish office if you wish to book other rooms.
Thank you for your understanding,
WELCOME to the online home of the English-speaking Catholic community in Luxembourg. Our community was established over 50 years ago and 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. God’s house is our house, and there is room for all to enter and feel at home.
