Our Mission is an official organisation in the Swiss canton (state) of Vaud, a broad geographic area including Lausanne and many other communities. Our community is very diversified, with many countries of origin, all social levels, a richness of cultural and work backgrounds and a large number of young families with children.
 
The Mission is managed by the Association of Our Lady of Faith and specifically by its Council, elected yearly by the entire community. Members of our community include permanent residents, people living here for several years as well as those who come for a short stay or who simply travel through the region for leisure, business or family reasons.
 
No matter your background and the intensity of your Catholic practice, we are pleased to welcome you, your family and your children.  Do not hesitate to contact us for any special need you might have!

About the Community

A group of people who wished to attend Mass in English was lead by a Holy Ghost priest, Fr Frank Culhane, in the 1960s and 1970s. Eventually, in order to exist officially, the Association of Our Lady of Faith was founded.

The Association is  a legal entity according to the civil law and is governed by that law.  To see a 'Who's Who' of our Council click on 'read more'.
