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.

Thank you for visiting with us ‚Äď whether in the church itself or on our web site.

We hope you have enjoyed your visit and that you will join us again soon.
