About us

The PCCT - The Philippine Catholic Community Tirol - has come into being in 1996!

We are a community of Philippine and Austrian catholics in the main.

Once a month - each last Saturday - we meet at the Parish Church Innsbruck-Saggen to celebrate the Holy Mass for thanksgiving and to commemorate our departed beloved ones and to share companionship in the subsequent Agape in a Philippine manner.

According to the Canon Law of the Catholic Church, as worship community the PCCT is associated to the Parish Innsbruck-Saggen.

You all are welcome to attend the divine service and to join our community.

The Eucharist we celebrate in a Philippine manner - using English, Tagalog and German as languages and singing Philippine chants - is open to everybody, especially to those who are suffering, to those who are rejoicing, to those who are seeking for a meaningful life, to those who are just looking forward to coming together.

"Come and see!" "Dali, upod bala agod makita mo!" "Komm und sieh!" "Pumarito ka at tingnan mo!" (John 1,46)
