History 

In 1995, the members of El Shaddai Prayer Partners Foundation International Frankfurt Chapter started to gather and have prayer gatherings in small place. As the group grew in number, there was a need to look for a convenient and a suitable location for their spiritual assemblies. Through the support and assistance of German friends, the Saint Ignatius Church was finally offered to them as the center of their religious activities.

In the course of time, out of this El Shaddai prayer group emanated the Couples For Christ until it was decided to finally form a Filipino Catholic community with the support of a Filipino priest from Belgium Father Rene Mangahas, SVD and then after sometime the supervision was assumed by Father Fernando Santos, also a Filipino SVD priest. After Father Santos left in 2007, Father Augustin Nkwain a Nigerian priest was assigned by the Diocese of Limburg to cater to the spiritual needs of the Filipino community in Saint Ignatius Parish Frankfurt.

In February of 2011, through the partnership between the Diocese of Alaminos and the Diocese of Limburg, Father Arnold Benedict Pola, Jr., a member of the Opifices Christi Missionary Priests, was installed as the first official chaplain of the Filipino Catholic community in the Diocese of Limburg.

Our Vision

Nourished by the word of God and inspired by the Holy Spirit, We, the Filipino community in the Diocese of Limburg, united as one family, will strive to become a community that is Christ centered and living a life of Christ for others; cultivated in unity, friendship and understanding with each other; home for every Migrant Filipino Family; compassionate, tolerant and responsive to the needs of others and deeply rooted with ideals and values of the Archdiocese of Limburg.
