About St. Anthony's

St. Anthony's is one of the best established non-Belgian churches in Belgium.  We are a english speaking church in Kraainem and are part of the Archdiocese of Mechelen Brussels.  The Archdiocese of Mechelen-Brussels is currently led by Cardinal Archbishop Jozef De Kesel.

We were founded in the early seventies to meet the spiritual and worship needs of the new member state citizens, from Ireland and UK, who came in large numbers to Brussels to work in the Old EEC.  Since then, of course, the parish has reached far beyond the boundaries of the expatriate Irish and British communities and now has a community of 40 and more different nationalities.  We have one of the most vibrant and diverse parishes you can find.

It is our hope that our website will contribute to uniting all who live here and help to build up our community, so that people will be fulfilled in their own lives and families, and be willing to share their time and talents for the benefit of their neighbour, parish and community.

Our Priests

It is thanks to the Irish Franciscans that we have such a fine parish here.  Successive pastors have brought vision and insight to their work at the parish.  The current Pastor Fr. Michael Nicholas has been here since 2020 and is overseeing the growth and development of the parish.  Fr. Patrick Power OFM who was parish priest for many years, now assisting Fr. Michael with all issues that may arise.
