Welcome to the online home of the English-speaking Community in Luxembourg. Our Community was established 60 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. English-speaking Masses have resumed in the Church of St Alphonse.
Weekend Masses are Saturday 7.30 pm (Vigil Mass), Sunday 11.30 am and 6.30pm. (Note change of times.)
Wednesdays 6.15pm – Mass is celebrated in English at St Alphonse.
Attending Mass: you will be asked to keep at least two metres between households. Please wear your mask during Mass. Under current Covid restrictions (March 2021) we are limited to 100 worshippers at Mass, so you are asked to arrive in good time so you can be seated safely. The 11:30 Mass is just about at full capacity — if there are no more safe places, we regret you may be turned away: observing safe practice has to be our priority.
If you are in one of the vulnerable categories please contact the parish office and places will be reserved for you to maintain social distancing of 2 metres.
You will be asked to disinfect your hands on entering the church.
Holy Communion is distributed in the hand only by (masked) Eucharistic ministers. For the moment only the priest will prepare the Mass, so there will be no access to the sacristy for members of the congregation. Children’s liturgy has resumed via Zoom. Please contact the parish office to register: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to our community slowly returning, staying safe and celebrating together again.
TOGETHER IN PRAYER
Though we are a scattered community at the moment, we are united to each other and with the Lord by our faith in Jesus Christ, risen from the dead. We can sing, pray and contemplate together:
If you have special prayer requests or Mass intentions please send them in and we’ll include them in our prayers.
