Welcome online to
Latin Catholic Parish
The Latin Catholic Parish of Paphos is in the Patriarchate of
Jerusalem. In 1987, the magnificent old church of Agia Kyriaki
Chrysopolitissa was entrusted to us by kind permission of Bishop
Chrysostomos, Metropolitan of Paphos; in 1988 the Anglican Community
were invited to join us and the Lutheran, Maronite and Finnish
Communities also hold services here on certain occasions. The
Orthodox community still holds some services here, particularly on
29th June, the feast of SS. Peter and Paul. In 1992 Bishop Chrysostomos further allowed the Latin Community use of St.Nicolas,
the Orthodox Church at Polis, to celebrate Holy Mass while at
Pissouri Holy Mass is celebrated in the Columbia Hotel.
The Parish is a lively Catholic community of people from all walks
of life; we have two centres - the Latin Community Centre in Adamantiou Korai, Kato Paphos, and the Latin Parish Hall on Tombs of
the Kings Road. At Mesa Chorio we have a cemetery (incorporating a
Pet Cemetery) with the chapel of SS.Cosmos and Damian, and a
Kindergarten which is open to children of all nationalities and
denominations. The Sisters of St.Bruno and Bethlehem have a small
convent, also at Mesa Chorio, and are a welcome addition to the
Parish activities include a Pastoral Care Group incorporating
hospital visiting, a Bereavement Support Group, and a Rosary Team.
The Flower arranging classes, Hand-made greetings cards, Prayer
cards/bookmarks, Line dancing, 100 Club and coin boxes are all run
to raise funds for the Hospice.
