Churches in the Diocese of Reykjavík

Masses are normally in Icelandic unless otherwise stated.

The Catholic Church in Iceland is partly a "diaspora" or decentralized church. This means that many Catholics live scattered across the country, often far away from a church or a chapel. Therefore priests and sisters travel from place to place in order to visit the Catholics living around Iceland and give them the sacraments. Usually Icelandic language is used in sermons and liturgy. However, since a substantial number of Catholics do not understand the language, sermons and liturgy is also frequently held in Polish or English.
