Assel day 2016

Since several years we organize the yearly “Assel Day”: a community day that takes place in Assel nearby Apeldoorn, in the Salesian Center of Don Bosco.

Also this year we are planning to organize it: for Saturday the 11th of June. It will be a day full of fun activities, potluck food brought by our parishioners, nice nature and prayers. And, Fr. Herman will join us!

We kindly ask everyone who is attending the event to bring a dish from their home country.

If you are interested, we kindly request you to fill in this form:

Deadline: Sunday June 5th, 2016 at 22:00 hrs.

Assel is difficult to access via public transports, so we organize a car pool to make sure everyone get’s there.

Once you are registered, more details will be shared with you later. Also, a couple of days prior to the event we will share with you the carpool plan and where in Utrecht to gather for the carpool (most likely around 9:00 AM on Saturday 11 June 2016).

If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate in contacting:
Ellen van Haastert,, tel: 06 2622 1393
Vitor Gaspar,, tel: 06 3427 5972.

We are excited and hope that many of you will join!
Greetings from Fr. Herman, Vítor and Ellen

Our community will join the thousands of Dutch pilgrims that will be there for the dutch day on the 15 November.

On Sunday, the 24th of the April, after coffee and tea at 14.30, Emke de Bruijn, from the travel agency VNB, will be with us to do a presentation about the pilgrimage. She will explain to us all the details about the pilgrimage and answer all our questions.

Some information about the pilgrimage, just to remind you:

We’ll fly to Rome Fiumicino. At arrival and departure you’ll be brought to the airport and the 3*** hotel by private bus. In Rome, you’ll travel by public transport. You’ll visit the 4 Basilica’s, go to an audience with Pope Francis, have a Holy Mass on Sunday, have a city walk from the Spanish Steps to Piazza Navona and a city walk from Piazza Venezia to San Clemente.
