About St. Anthony's
St Anthony's is one of the best established expatriate parishes in Belgium. We were founded in the early seventies to meet the spiritual and worship needs of the new member state citizens, from Ireland and the United Kingdom, 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 to welcome people from all over the world. From as far a field as the USA, Australia, Indonesia and Africa, we now have one of the most vibrant and diverse parishes you could hope to 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.
Life at Saint Anthony's
We are happy to share memories of events that take place at Saint Anthony's Visit our gallery.
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.
Our New Parish Pastor from 1st November 2020 is :
Fr Michael Nicholas OFM Biography (119.4 KB) who joined the Parish in 2019.
Fr. Pat Power OFM will be staying on here in Brussels and will be assisting Fr. Michael
Fr. Pats Biography (79.5 KB) - Fr Pat has been here since 2008 and has seen a growth and development of the parish.
They work together to cover all issues that may arise.
