Tip #17- Religious Worship, Part 1

Sweden is officially a Lutheran/Protestant country and there are plenty of churches in the city offering Lutheran services, but I often get asked by guests about religious services for other denominations and religions. So I thought I would write, in two parts, about how to find Catholic & Jewish services in Stockholm.
.
The Catholic Church has several churches within the city limits, and the main diocese church (Domkyrkan) is actually just a 10-15 minute walk from the Rival Hotel. Located near the Medborgarplatsen square... this church offers  several masses daily, with the masses on Sunday given in several languages (Swedish, Polish, Croatian, Italian & Latin). Please contact me or the hotel reception to get actual times for the different masses and when the confessional is open. Another nearby church is St. Eugenia which is located next to the park Kungsträdgården (closest subway Kungsträdgården- blue line) in the downtown area. They also offer several masses daily, with a Sunday 6pm mass in English. Once again, contact us for other mass/confessional times.
Both of the churches websites, linked above, are in Swedish. However the Catholic Church of Sweden has a website with a limited page in English linked here. There you can find mass times of all of the Catholic churches in Sweden as well as some other information.
Next week: Judaism.

  1. Hi there, I'm going to Stockholm this Christmas, could you please tell me if I'm able to find masses (Roman Catholic) either in English or in Latin, for the 24th and the 25th Dec? If so, do you have the times and address of the church? Thanks a lot! I'll check your post out for the info.
