The Bad Homburg Filipino Catholic Community is under the jurisdiction of the Bistum Limburg. This community started wayback June 1996 under the leadership of Heinz Rohe and Virgilio Baldoz who were both active members of the El Shaddai Prayer Group and Couples for Christ.

For a long time, the community held their Holy Eucharist with the help of some priests from St. Georgen Theological University in Frankfurt. After some time, Rev. Fr. Fernando Santos, SVD took over in celebrating the regular monthly Holy Eucharist but he was later transferred to another assignment and Fr. Mechor Braga, from the Diocese of Alaminos, was temporarily assigned to celebrate the Mass.

In February of 2011, through the partnership between the Diocese of Alaminos and the Diocese of Limburg, Fr. Arnold Benedicto U. Pola, Jr., a member of the Opifices Christi Missionary Priests was appointed to oversee the spiritual needs and to put up the structural organization of the community. The community has 30 to 50 Mass attendees every month.

Community Goal

  • To encourage the members of the community to come and join our monthly celebration of the Mass
  • To motivate our community to join and to be united with the other communities in celebrating the different events of the Diocesan Filipino Catholic Community
  • To teach the children and youth the importance of God in their lives and to instill on them the Filipino religious culture and traditions
  • To be united and supportive with the other communities in our parish
