Welcome to the R.C. Church of Our Saviour

W e are a large international English Speaking Roman Catholic church with parishioners who come from around 95 different nationalities. We are part of the Diocese of Rotterdam. We were established about 60 years ago to provide services for the military stationed in The Hague just after the war and have had many homes and many pastors over the years. Fr Sjaak de Boer joined us in 1998, following earlier work in Kenya and Brazil. In 2003 we were able to find a permanent home in our lovely church, which we then shared with the local Dutch parish. We took over responsibility for the whole building in 2008. Since then we have made a number of structural changes including the creation of a large and airy Pastoral Centre. Do come and visit us – you are bound to find someone with whom you have something in common!

Our Mission Statement

We, the International English Speaking Roman Catholic Church of Our Saviour in The Hague, want to share our talents and opportunities to serve as messengers and instruments of Christ’s Gospel. Through the wide variety of cultures and international networks, our Parish offers a unique opportunity to share the vision of God’s Kingdom with the global community. We aim to show our love for God in the love for our neighbour and our environment and to connect our spirituality, religious formation and daily lives with the promotion of justice and peace.
