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 always room to enter and to feel at home. Ed Hone CSsR, Chaplain to the English-speaking community. Regular times of Mass in English are at the foot of this page.
