We celebrate Mass at the parish church every Sunday at 10 am. At Mass we pray, sing and learn more about Jesus and God. There are also other activities at the church, as well as in our parish home in Asola (Asolantie 6). Most of our activities are in Finnish, but you can join us even if we do not share a common language. Multicultural activities and activities in English across Vantaa are listed below.

If you wish to know more about God or about the activities of the parish, you can telephone us, email us or come in for a visit. You can speak with a pastor or with a deacon. If you have worries, we can pray for you. We can also help you search for ways to solve your problems.
