Welcome to the Pastoral Centre!
The Pastoral Centre was established in April, 2007 at St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Wrocław by Archbishop Marian Gołębiewski, to meet the pastoral needs of English-speaking foreigners in the diocese. The Conventual Franciscan Friars of St. Charles parish are responsible for the Pastoral Centre.
The Pastoral Centre welcomes anyone who speaks English and needs the sacraments or pastoral care. If you are a Catholic seeking Mass in English; if you want to have your wedding celebrated in English, or you need to complete missing sacraments (First Communion, Confirmation); if you need confession or a priest’s advice in English; or if you are a non-Catholic English-speaker who is interested in the Catholic Church, we welcome you and invite you to the English Mass at 16:00 every Sunday (18:00 in July and August).Read more
