In Mexico City, there are two Catholic parishes that offer mass in English on Sundays.  One is at St. Patrick's Parish near the American School and the ABC Hospital.  However, the mass that has more people and all of the ex pats is at Lourdes Parish (Castillo de Chapultepec 70, Lomas de Reforma in Western Mexico City).  English mass is at 11 AM on Sundays, confession from 10 to 11 AM.

Catholic church, Ajijic, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingI’m a Catholic and I never go to English-speaking masses. I confess in Spanish, even though I know of a Catholic church here in the village that offers masses in English on certain days.  
 
I’m not referring to all of Mexico, but anywhere that you go where there’s a Gringo community (and there are usually a lot of Gringo communities it in most places in Mexico), you’ll find that there’s usually an English mass.
 
Most people who move to this area in Lake Chapala or live in the villages here go to the Spanish-speaking mass, unless they’re that picky and have to have an English mass. The mass should be the same whether you’re in New York or in Mexico. Any Catholic coming to Chapala and Ajijic from New York or Texas can understand the mass although they may not understand every word because every Catholic mass is done in the same way.
 
If you’re a Protestant or an Anglican, there are churches here for you. For example, there are 3 - 4 different churches in Riberas del Pilar, in the Chapala Lakeside area. 
 
When I go to mass in Ajijic, I see a lot of Gringos.

English- speaking church Bridge the Bod Christian Ministry in the Mayan community, Cancun Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingWhether you can find an English-speaking church in Mexico really depends on where you are in Mexico – generally, areas with lots of expats will have more English-speaking churches.  There are several well-known English churches in Mexico City, and you can also find them in places like Cabo San Lucas or in San Miguel de Allende.  In some areas you might find churches that offer one service a week in English rather than all services. You will likely find it difficult to find an English-speaking church in rural areas of Mexico.
