Welcome in your Catholic church in Leiden!
Welcome to the website of the Sint Lodewijkskerk. The English translation is, "The Church of Saint Louis," which is located in the centre of the city of Leiden in The Netherlands. We have a growing group of English speaking parishioners who are visiting and actively participating in our parish-life. We also hope, that you will find a warm welcome and, "a-home-away-from-home," in our beautiful church.
English Mass and more.
You are also most welcome to join us in our DAILY MASS, and especially in the English mass, which is every Sunday at 18.00. On the first Sunday of the month there is also, "coffee after mass," which is a wonderful opportunity to meet and socialize with each other.
During the summer there will be no English mass for a few weeks as always you are more than welcome at the 10am Mass on sunday. The last English mass of this season will be the 10th of July and we will start again the 27th of August.

St. Michael's prayer group
You are welcome to join us for an hour of Eucharistic adoration, while meditating on the readings from the upcoming Sunday. Throughout the hour there will be moments of silence alternated with the reading of some Bible verses, reflections and prayers to help us dive deeper into Gods word spoken to us. We will finish the evening by praying to St. Michael and placing all our prayers and intentions into our Lady’s hands.
Why Saint Michael?
In a world where it becomes more difficult to find time for prayer and living out our faith we want to unite ourselves with St. Michael. To ask his intercession and protection during these prayer evenings where we try to grow closer in love towards eachother and God. I am going to send an angel in front of you, to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. (Ex. 23:20)
