Inaugurated in 2019 by the Cardinal-Patriarch of Lisbon, the Pastoral Centre serves the parish by offering several spaces for group meetings and catechesis. We also have a registry office which is open to the public. The Pastoral Center supports various initiatives and groups in the Parish, which use its facilities for meetings and courses. When the Pastoral Centre is not being used for group activities, it serves as a place of study for students of the parish.

Laudato Si

Inspired by the encyclical Laudato Si published in 2015, this group aims to be a community, within the parish, that reflects, prays and acts on ecological issues that lead to a profound inner transformation. This group is open to all ages and stages of life. Come along to the various lectures, conversations and other initiatives on offer. Please visit the group web page for more information.

Synod 2021-2023

The Holy Father invites us to reflect on Synodality in the Church, and on how to journey together with Jesus. To this end, he convened a synod on synodality, consisting of several phases: parish, diocesan, national and the Universal Church. We are currently in the parish phase of this synodal discovery.

World Youth Day 2023

Lisbon is preparing to host the largest gathering of young Catholics in the world. The Cascais Parish will play an active role in this event, not only because of its geographical proximity, making it possible for young people from all over the world to stay with various families and other places in our town, but also with all the support that will be needed to help with preparations for this world event. Find out what is happening right now and volunteer your time or help financially. Get to know those who are organising the World Youth Day Local Committee and find out who to contact to contribute.
