Saint Eugenia RC Church is an interesting architectural feat. Carved out of an earlier palace, it is is a modern structure that reminds me of the hidden RC Churches from an earlier period found in Amsterdam. The bands of thin red bricks interspersed with mortar are reminiscent of much older Italian and Middle Eastern churches. There is a complete description of the history of the Parrish and the church on Wikipedia; I wish I had read it before going to church.

English mass is held at 1800. Excellent traditional music and a good homily by a visiting Jesuit priest made for a very complete service. Parishioners are truly drawn to this Parrish from all over the world. A very high level of devotion was present.

This Roman Catholic church is located next to Kungsträdgården Park.

It is hardly visible as a church from outside because it is hidden completely behind the neo-renaissance facade of the former historic palace.

The church was consecrated in 1982. It has a modern red brick interior.

Standard modern RC church I guess. I'm not 'into' this style of architecture but as a church it felt welcoming and there were some nice decorative touches.

We attended Mass here as a visitor. It is nicely located in a downtown area and close to the Downtown Camper hotel. The service was very inspirational and at this Mass was a children's service. About 80 children were invited to sit around the Altar and the priest gave the homily to them.

Topped by a golden crucifix the entrance to this grand church is relatively hushed amongst all the similar building facades opposite the tranquil green space Kungsträdgården. It was the only Catholic Church we came across in the city. It was also the most modern of any denomination we saw.

Dating from 1982 the modern attributes are most attractive. The lightly hued brickwork is very effective, providing an unobtrusive backdrop to the simplicity of the holy space.

In keeping with its design timeline there is no high altar. The stone one, backed by a large dark wooden crucifix, is quiet and effective.

A few rows of wooden pews form the central area. The lightly coloured wooden beams on the ceiling mirror the pews, crucifix and organ. The latter is wonderful elevated in its balcony and with a matching set of pipes on the adjoining wall.

A parallel side chapel is lovely with gleaming long bench pews and a compelling adoration area.

In the vestibule are some statues and holy art pieces. Here is a fine roof aperture flooding the area with light.
