We Filipinos express and demonstrate our faith in God through our many culturally rich traditions, feasts, and devotions. Inside our churches are different images and statues. Not ony statues of Jesus and Mary are present, but also of our favourite saints. This is how we live and practice our faith as Filipinos.

Christmas for Filipinos especially for those living and working abroad will not be complete without the tradition of Simbang Gabi being celebrated from December 16-24.

Here are the summary of the Mass Celebration and Simbang Gabi.

During this pandemic, we are still following the protocol if you wish to attend physically.

Due to tight restrictions of gathering, the Filipino Catholic Community in the Diocese of Limburg, thru the leadership of the new chaplain Rev. Fr. Francis Ofrancia, the annual advent recollection will be held virtually live on social media.

 The new chaplain of the Filipino Catholic Communities in the area of the Diocese of Limburg received a warm and hearty welcome in a Eucharistic celebration held in Sankt Ignatius in Frankfurt on November 15, 2020.

We wanted to maximize the use social media and available tools on the internet to reach out to the community and all Filipino Catholics in Germany who wish to participate and  attend our religious events. For now we are mostly doing it on line and live in Facebook and now we have set up our Youtube Channel.

 As announced by Rev. Father Mares during the Sunday Mass,  being the Rosary month, the daily Rosary will be back again online. To those who wish to lead the Rosary, you may contact Sister Alice Dela Cruz.

Here are the assigned leaders and responder of the Rosary Live. Please join us on our Community Facebook.

Minamahal naming mga Filipinong Parishioners ng Bistum Limburg,

Simula po noong Mayo 3, 2020 ay muli pong pinapayagan ang pagdiriwang ng Banal na Misa at iba pang religious activities sa mga Simbahan. Ngunit para matiyak ang kaligtasan ng lahat ay hindi po muna kagaya ng dati ang pwede nating gagawin dahil sa banta pa din ng pandemya.

Frankfurt, 13 April 2020 -- Exactly at 18:00 CET, the number of likes were screen-captured. Garnering 529  and  , AC Lozanes from Frankfurt Community won the first prize.  As of this writing her photo entry has collected 586 and still counting. 

The COVID19 crisis should not stop up from having fun and celebrate Easter specially the kids. It is true that we can no longer meet (in person) and celebrate our annual tradition of easter egg making. However, we will continue to do this online. How do we do it?

Frankfurt, 22 March 2020 -- In the fourth week of lent, Father Mares celebrated the community mass in St. Ignatius Parish Church and fed it online using Facebook Live. Although it is a delayed broadcast, the members of the community were glad to online and most are appreciable and felt blessed. The way of the cross was also recited before the mass started.

Frankfurt, 15 March 2020 -- Today, March 15, 2020 is the last celebration of the Holy Eucharist in St. Ignatius Church, Frankfurt by the Filipino Catholic Community. Announced by Father Mares and as per directives of the Bishop of Limburg, masses and other para-liturgical activities for the entire Diocese staring 16th of March until the 4th of April will be suspended  due to the threat of the Corona Virus.
