November bible study

jesus_raises_lazarusThe time for our November bible study is approaching. Since September we are having a bible study and a prayer on the same evening every third Wednesday of the month. Our next bible study/prayer meeting will be held at the pastoral center of St. Augustinus on the 16th of November from 19.45; the entrance is at the backside of St. Augustinus church – Rozenstraat 1.We will meditate on John 11:38-54 about the resurrection of Lazarus.

We will be blessed to count you among us.

Afternoon Movie – The Vatican

vaticanWhen most people think about the Vatican they think about the Pope, the Roman Catholic Church and the impressive art and architecture. But the Papal State has much more to offer. This documentary gives you an intimate look at one of the most revered places in the world. You will be witness of the holy rituals that outsiders only rarely participate. Furthermore you will see the people – the religious leaders to the art restorers – who live in the Vatican. They tell what it is like to work in this nearly two thousand years old Institute.

An excellent documentary! The Vatican is as objective as possible displayed in short but bright parts, with respect for the Catholic Church. Impressive, informative and very complete!

This documentary will be shown in the Coffee room of the St. Augustine Church, on Sunday the 27th November, at 14:30.
Fr. O. Swijnenberg will speak after the documentary.

Next Tridentine Mass

As announced before, we have now in Utrecht a Tridentine Mass being celebrated regularly.
The Tridentine Mass is a Roman Rite Mass, following older rituals and celebrated in Liturgical Latin.


The next will be held on Wednesday, the 9th of November at 19.00.
As before, it will be celebrated in the St. Rafael church, in Overvecht, Utrecht.

To reach the church, coming from the center, you can take either of the buses: 1, 3 or 6. The address of the church is: Lichtenberchdreef 4, 3562 RD Utrecht

If you are interested please come along! It would be great to have you among us!
