Weekly English Mass in Amsterdam

Honoring our Catholic tradition, Our Lady of the most Holy Rosary parish is a Catholic Community building the reign of God in the “Oud-Zuid” quarter of the city of Amsterdam.

We value vibrant liturgy and personal prayer, as a way to worship God and celebrate life.
We are an inclusive community respecting the dignity of all persons and supporting the journey of each person.
We respond to the command of Jesus to love by welcoming all, evangelizing, supporting spiritual growth, and being Eucharist to each other. Challenged by the Holy Spirit.

For the regular weekly masses, please see the Agenda.

Feel welcome and enjoy your stay.
Pastoor J.J. Quadvlieg

Meditation changes your professional and personal life

Online event on March 6, 2021 with Laurence Freeman and Herman van Rompuy

Early last year we planned to host at Obrechtkerk a visit by Fr Laurence on March 7th, to hear about his book ‘Good Work’, gain insight and a short experience of meditation led directly by Fr Laurence. This is an invitation to join the online event set up by WCCM Belgium (due to COVID) that will take place on March 6th. The event is in English and Dutch with translations.

Fr Laurence has been teaching and leading meditation globally for many years. During this event, he presents how the practice of meditation cultivated in a corporate organization, helps and promotes the work-life journey. Having had the pleasure of learning and working directly with Fr Laurence some years back, we can only recommend not to miss this opportunity to hear directly from a world leader in meditation, how meditation will transform all aspects of our life, especially in our professions.

Please register on the website meditatio.be when you wish to attend. Please also drop us a line (englishmass@obrechtkerk.nl) to let us know that you are joining this event, as this information will be good to have to organize our local event with Fr Laurence in the future.

International Community

Our international mass commenced in September 2018 as a once a month community mass. Responding to the interest and needs of the community, the Saturday weekly mass was initiated from October 2019.

Our international team are volunteers who have been living in Amsterdam from 14 months to 15+ years. They are multi-national, multi-cultural, multi-lingual and are keen to bridge the experience of faith and community for expatriates and visitors in Amsterdam.

We are a family friendly community and welcome new parishioners to our growing active, vibrant and diverse community. We especially welcome children to our Saturday family mass and will include children actively during our service ensuring a good experience for the family.
