We are an active, English-speaking Catholic Christian community in Bratislava, that comes together to deepen our faith. Our weekly English language programs are open to all who seek a closer relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.


Mass is offered in English each Sunday at 11:00 at Sv. Ladislav Catholic Church. Masses in English on Holy Days of Obligation are variously celebrated. Consult "News" on the right hand side of this web page for specific information regarding them.

Sv. Ladislav Church is located at Špitálska 7, Bratislava. Across from Tesco department store. Please consult the map below to see the precise location.

Alžbety), which is located between St. Ladislav Church (Kostol sv.Ladislava) and St. Elizabeth (Kostol Alžbetínok). When arriving, just tell the guard the secret password: "Svätá omša" ("Holy mass" :-), as he probably will not speak English.

Who we are: yesterday and today

It all started in 1993, when a retired Divine Word missionary, Father Frantisek Sirovic SVD, started saying masses at St. Ladislav Church in English. Thereafter, we have been blessed to have diocesan priests serving us, as well as those representing the Divine Word, Jesuit, Redemptorist and Rogationist religious orders.

We in the English speaking community come from all corners of the globe. We are a mix of ethnicities, nationalities and sometimes even denominations and religions. And while you can see Slovaks, Africans, Americans, Asians, British, Dutch, French, Germans, Italians, Spanish, etc. among us, we all sing the same songs and share the same communion. Some of us are permanent residents of Bratislava, others are just passing through and grace us with their presence.

Whatever your circumstances, you are most cordially welcome to join us. Please "click" on the above icons for more information on our weekly programs or contact us at: info (AT) catholic.sk

Looking forward to seeing you!
