Regarding the first Extra Sunday Mass, we want to correct a small miscommunication that we have informed before.
We would indeed like to share that we received the green light to start a Latin Novus Ordo Mass, but the first mass will be celebrated on September 15, 2019 and every following Sunday of the month of September. And from Sunday 13 October every 2nd, 3rd, 4th and possibly 5th Sunday of the month!
The other activities such as the rosary prayer and the adoration, which will keep the cathedral open all Sunday afternoon, also will only start on Sunday 15 September.
On 8 September, we invite the community to participate in the Sint Willibrord procession from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m, followed by Vespers in the Catherine Cathedral. The procession starts at the statue of the saint at the Janskerkhof. Join this important and moving tradition of Utrecht and let’s show to this beautiful city how wonderful it is to be a Catholic and to love our God through His saints, such as our holy Willibrord.
With that said, the focus will be on Sunday 1 September on the first Tridentine mass in the cathedral at 5 p.m. (without prior rosary and adoration), on Sunday 8 September on the Willibrord procession at 4 pm and on Sunday 15 September on the first Sunday afternoon opening of the St. Catherine’s Cathedral with rosary at 2.30 pm, adoration at 4 pm and the first Novus Ordo Latin mass at 5 pm!
