English Masses in Barcelona

So the festive season is well and truly in swing! Although strictly the Catalans don't celebrate Christmas as much as the Epiphany, it's still a public holiday, and many tourists descend on the "Cuidad Condal" for their Christmas break. One thing important to many is to celebrtate a Christmas mass whilst they are here in the city, and I've been asked this question before and never known how to answer. I had originally planned to get this post out before Christmas (would have been handy, I know), but didn't get the chance.

I apologise if the heading of this post was misleading anyone into thinking this would be about a huge invasion of English tourists arriving to Barcelona! It is in fact a short list of places to find an English Mass in Barcelona. I thought that the city's main Cathedral offered an English mass (especially at this festive time) but have drawn a blank so far with details, so if anyone has more information about that, please let me know in the comments.

There is a website dedicated to Catholic Mass in Barcelona here which explains the location of the church - Avinguda Esplugues 103, 08034 Barcelona.
