The international English community was created in March 2017 under the leadership of Fr. Edmund Owusu SVD. It was recognised that there was a growing need to cater for the spiritual needs of expats and international students studying in Breda. Complying with the request of Bishop Jan Liesen, the community was inaugurated in St. Michael church.
Since that time the community has continued to grow and flourish. It is now home to a multitude of diverse cultures, traditions, languages and ethnic backgrounds. What unites us is the love and care that the community members share with one another in the name of Jesus.

The community comes together every Sunday at 13:00 hours in St. Michael church, Hooghout 67, Breda for the Eucharist celebration. The parish team of St. Augustine’s parish is responsible for this community under the leadership of Fr. Rian Supardi. There are many priests of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD) who regularly offer their help and support. Additionally there is a committee that looks into the needs of the community, comprising of Brendan Catlow, Luisa Bastianoni and William.
