Catholic Mass in English

edited December 1969 in General
I have heard that a Mass is held at 10AM on Sunday's in English in Funchal, could someone tell me at which Church this is held? I have Catholic visitors coming in June.

Thanks in advance


  • There is an Anglican English CHurch ( which has a communion service Weds and Sundays with an English Chaplain and refreshments in the gardens after the Sunday 11.00 service. I also believe that there may be a Catholic service in a building near to Quinta de Pena França behind the Savoy, although I do not think this is a church.
  • In case anyone else is interested I found the small Church which is near the Albert Bar (Capela da Pena de Franca). If you get the small map from the Tourist Office it is Church number 21. The mass in English is at 10AM on Sunday mornings. If you face the Pestana Carlton don't take the road down to the harbour take the small branch to the left.
  • Capela da Pena de Francais a very small place

    both places are nice to visit

    highly recommended
