FAREWELL TO HOLLERICH

Sunday 7 July marks the last Mass of the English-speaking community in Hollerich (11am). Until further notice, all our Masses will be in St Alphonse — please note time change for Sunday: Saturday, 7pm, Sunday, 11.15am. Mass is also celebrated in English each Wednesday at 7.30am at St Alphonse.

Our Mass on 7 July will be a Mass of thanksgiving for all the graces our community has received over the 29 years it has met for Mass at SS Peter & Paul. We have invited the Curé Moderateur, P. Kroeger, members of the Fabrique d’Eglise, Abbé Hierzig (regular celebrant in Hollerich) and the Missionnaires Immaculée de  Maximilan Kolbe; whilst P. Kroeger has other Sunday engagements, we hope to welcome our other invitees.

We are reserving our ‘grand celebration’ for our move to our new home, wherever that might be. The archdiocese are working on our behalf to find a suitable church for us; our consultation meeting last Sunday (30 June) heard of several possible venues. For now, we watch, wait and pray!
