Fourth Sunday of Lent (26th March 2017)

Eyesight to the Blind
Dobry den and hello to all brothers and sisters in Christ! This week we will be celebrating Mass with Father Peter and we will hear readings from:


1 Samuel 16:1, 6-7, 10-13
Psalm 23:1-6
Ephesians 5: 8-14
Gospel: John 9: 1-41

In the Gospel reading, we will read about Jesus healing a man who had been born blind from birth. When the people brought the man to the Pharisees, the Pharisees were divided. Some say, " This man is not from God, for he works on the sabbath" and others say, "How can a sinner perform such miraculous signs?" (Jn 9:16)

The Pharisees were made blind and the blind man came to see and recognize who Jesus is. Like the Pharisees, we can also be spiritually blind, failing to recognize God especially when put in difficult situations.

But God calls us to live as children of the light and who will give us this light? It is Jesus Christ, His beloved Son. And how do we respond to Him? 


The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want. (Ps 23:1)

We would like to welcome everyone to join us in Mass this Sunday, 26th March, at 10.00a.m in Caritas Chapel. Hope to see you in Mass! 

Special announcement: 
There will be a session for the Sacrament of Confession just before the beginning of the Mass. It will be held starting from 8.00 a.m with Father Mirek. For those who are interested, you can come to the chapel starting from 8.00 a.m.

8th Sunday of the Ordinary Time (26th February 2017)

Do Not Be Anxious! 

Dobry den and hello to all brothers and sisters in Christ! This week is the 8th Sunday of the Ordinary Time and we will be celebrating it in Mass with Father Mirek. We will hear readings from:

Isaiah 49: 14 - 15
Psalm 62: 2 - 3, 6 - 9
1 Corinthians 4: 1 - 5
Matthew 6: 24 - 34

While we were choosing the songs to be played during the Mass, the response in the Responsorial Psalm strike us hard: Rest in God alone, my soul. What does it mean for us? In this week's readings, we see ourselves anxious and worried about material needs such as food, drinks and clothing. Through the readings, we see God is telling us not to worry about these things and to rely on Him completely instead. God takes care of His creation - the birds, the wild flowers, the grass and so much more. 

If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? 
(Matthew 6:30)

Do we really believe that God cares for us, that He alone can provide for all our needs?

Greetings from Olomouc!

Dobry den and hello everyone! Welcome to the second month of the new year 2017! Last year was a blessed year for the English Mass community here in Olomouc because we met a lot of new people during Mass and Father Peter and Father Mirek were continuing to help us with English Mass. Most of the people who came were exchange students and some are working in Olomouc. We gained new friends and we also said goodbyes to these friends as they went back to their home countries. 

During Christmas, we celebrated Mass with both Father Peter and Father Mirek. We also had a group of exchange students from Croatia with us. Afterwards, we had lunch together which was prepared by a group of students from Malaysia and desserts were prepared by Father Peter and Father Mirek.

Caritas Chapel has been our home for English Mass for the 5th year already





Our community would like to thank everyone who has been coming and helping for Mass throughout the year. Most importantly, thank God for He has been guiding our little community throughout the years. 

In this new year of 2017, we would like to welcome everyone to join us in Mass. It does not matter whether you are an exchange student, Czech student, working, traveler, etc. If you are new to this beautiful town and need some help with basic things, we will try our best to help. If you are a Czech and want to connect with the international community, come and join us too as we can speak some basic Czech too. 

Last but not least, we hope for this English Mass to continue being a home to more people as it has been for us these 5 years. If you are interested, you can check the blog for updates on schedule of Mass for the year 2017. Every Mass will start at 10.00 am.
