We regret to inform that we won’t be able to resume the public masses starting on the 1st of June.
Previously we announced this would be possible but not in our community.
The previous announcement had to do with the general protocols for the Catholic church in the Netherlands, defined by the Bishops. The protocol can be found here in English and Spanish: https://englishmassutrecht.nl/corona-virus/
Each specific parish will need to come up with specific measures to make sure that this protocol is followed. At this point our parish coordination (the Catharinaberaad) still wasn’t able to find the best solution to implement the protocol.
The following meeting of the Catharinaberaad will be on the 8th of June. They will then determine if it’s possible to resume the public masses by the Sunday after (14th of June).
We will continue to follow the deliberations of the Catharinaberaad, and we will let you know when we have more information. Until then the masses will continue to be streamed as usual. For the time being the streaming will continue in the Rafael church and in due time from the St. Catherine cathedral.
We will keep everyone posted.
