What's New ...


Work is being done on St. Anton's bell-tower and the main entrance from Minervastrasse to the church is inaccessible to vehicles.  You may still enter from Neptunstrasse, but parking inside the church grounds will be very difficult and very limited.  This situation will continue until November 2018, so please prepare now to either come to church by public transport, or to seek a parking space elsewhere.

AT EASTER 2018 the HCPT Switzerland Verein will be travelling for our third consecutive Easter Pilgrimage to the beautiful town of Lourdes in the south of France.  This is where Our Lady appeared to St Bernadette 18 times imparting several key messages, including at the 6th apparition, "You will pray to God for sinners."  When in Lourdes, we join up with a much larger Children's Pilgrimage consisting of thousands of people from all over the world.  See for yourself what the HCPT is about here:  If you would you like to travel to Lourdes with the HCPT Switzerland Verein or simply learn more about our Verein, please contact Mike Johnson at  This email address is being protected from spambots.
