Of course we will have, as usual, mass in English on Sunday, 3rd November in the St. Catherine Cathedral, at 12:30.
On the 10th of November the English Mass will take place at 10:00 in the Rafael Church in Overvecht and will be partly in English and partly in Dutch. The parishes in Utrecht celebrate the Parish Community Day together on this day. All parishes will join in the Rafael church in Overvecht at 10:00 for mass and coffee and lunch afterwards. There will be NO mass at 12:30 in the Cathedral on the 10th of November.
Please let us know if you’d like to join for coffee or lunch afterwards through this link:
Please bring food and personal care items with long shelf life to mass to donate to the food bank of Utrecht. You can donate them in the back of the Rafael church.
If you’d like to volunteer to help during the coffee and tea or lunch please email your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday, the 6th of October there is a running event though the center of Utrecht: the Singelloop.
Due to this, the St. Catherine Cathedral might be difficult to reach.
Please check your visit with time before coming to mass.
