  • Felt immediately like my church since I arrived in Torshavn. Welcoming community despite the large presence of tourists. Important role of the nuns to make everyone feel as if we were in their own parish.

  • During our stay in Torshavn we went to mass for two days in this beautiful parish community, welcomed with great sympathy by the Franciscan Sisters Missionaries of Mary. The parish church invites silence and prayer. Beautiful!
