Christmas Eve Church Service in Zurich?

Looking for a Christmas Eve Mass (Catholic) in Zurich... preferable one that does not start at Midnight...

I found this but think it's just a concert and not Mass? Any insights?

Christmas Concerts

when: 24 - 25 Dec 2010 (annual)
where: Kirche St. Peter und Paul
cost: Free
time: 24 Dec 10pm; 25 Dec 9.30am
On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in Zurich, the Amadeus Choir performs two Christmas Concerts at the Kirche St Peter und Paul. On the programme is a rendition of Haydn's Mass number 5, the Grosse Orgelsolomesse Mass.

Might this be of some help?

St. Anton's
Neptunstrasse 60, Zurich, Zurich, 8032

If you don't want to be limited to English services, this can help you find other Catholic churchs in Zurich:

Re: Christmas Eve Church Service in Zurich?

Another option if you are in the mood for a bit of a trek outside Zürich: The Christmas services at the monastery at Einsiedeln are beautiful.

ETA:
http://www.einsiedeln.ch/Kloster-Wallfahrt.1107.0.html

Click on 'Weihnachten in der Klosterkirche' for info.

There is a vigil service at 20:00 sung by the monks, followed by Christmas music, and then mass with the full orchestra and choir at 23:00. On Christmas day, mass is held at 10:30, again with the orchestra and choir.

There will be a huge crowd, people start turning up an hour early (or more) , there is usually standing room only by the time mass begins. If you have small children the crowds might be a bit much for them.

But the services really are something special.

I'm not surprised that there is only one church in the Zürich area where there are English-language Masses, but it is a surprise that there are many more Italian Masses than French. Are there that many Italians or Italian-speaking Swiss in Zürich?

I do not know the numbers, but I think the Italians are more willing to attend the services.

The link I posted up thread for Kloster Einsiedeln no longer exists, the current page for Mass info over the holidays is here, click in the appropriate day:

http://www.kloster-einsiedeln.ch/?id=2

Christmas Eve, Christmas Day Masses at Einsiedeln are truly special, that indeed remains.
