The English Speaking Roman Catholic Mission in Zurich has been worshipping in St Anton`s Swiss Catholic Parish, since 1962.

St Anton`s Church is a magnificent and beautiful building which in 2009 celebrated 100 years as a place of worship.

The ESCM serves all Catholics who speak English, live in Canton Zurich, and wish to pray and receive the Sacraments in the English language.
