Vienna's English Speaking Catholic Community (VESCC) has moved to a new location and no longer celebrates their Sunday Mass at the Votivkirche.
From this weekend, the English Language Sunday Mass will be celebrated - at 12 noon instead of at 11am - at the church St. Francis of Assisi in Mexikoplatz, in Vienna’s 2nd district Leopoldstadt.
More details can be found at the community website www.vescc.org which also has information about the times of other community events and services.
For those who know Vienna, the church of St. Francis of Assisi in Mexikoplatz is the imposing church at the foot of the Reichsbrücke.
The VESCC pastor, Father Kevin, said: "It's not difficult to get there - just around the corner from the Vorgartenstrasse stop on the U1 underground line.
"If you’re driving from the city centre, take the Lasallestraße leading to Reichsbrücke. Turn right at Engerthstraße just before reaching the bridge and then another right to get to Mexikoplatz.
"Alternatively you can also get there along the Handelskai street. The church will be at your left just after reaching the Reichsbrücke exit. There is ample street parking around the church and Mexikoplatz itself."
Father Kevin, on behalf of the VESCC, looks forward to welcoming our community members and friends to our new home.
