New alternative mass schedule for Sundays at 5PM


Some time ago we sent out a questionnaire about interest in an extra mass on Sunday afternoon.

It has been decided that this mass will be planned for Sundays at 5 PM, starting on the 2nd week of September.

The organization however is still searching for a sacristan that can help with preparing and cleaning up the church.

The tasks will be to open the Cathedral before 5 PM, to close it after 6 PM and to arrange eveything inside so that the mass can be celebrated. It is a pure volunteer work, that should be performed as part of a team in a rotating schedule.

If you are willing to help please let the organization know by sending an email to the following address, letting them know how often can you help (once every 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 … weeks?)
