Welcome to our homepage!

The Catholic Church in Finland is formed by only one Diocese, that of Helsinki. It comprises the whole of Finland. The Bishop of Helsinki is H. E. Msgr. Teemu Sippo S.C.I., under whose guidance there are eight parishes – two in Helsinki, the Capital city. There are 32 priests working in Finland.

The Catholic Church in Finland has 14,447 registered members (2016), half of whom are native Finns. The rest of the Faithful come from at least 100 different countries from all five Continents.
