Holy Adoration

Every Friday from 13.00 – 18.00 hours
The Host is the consecrated wafer, contained in a ‘monstrance’, a golden casket. This is placed on the altar, above the tabernacle (the box with the consecrated wafers in chalices).
According to the teachings, the Host is the body of Christ, in the shape of bread. Christ ‘gave’ himself to the people during the Last Supper. He broke the loaf and distributed it to his friends (the apostles) saying: ‘this is my body that will be broken for you.’ After that the wine ‘this is my blood’. Display or Adoration is the Monstrance standing there.

Holy Baptism (children)

Children are baptized preferably during one of the Celebrations of the Eucharist in the weekend. This happens three times a year. Every baptismal ceremony is preceded by two preparatory discussion evenings for the parents of the children receiving baptism. This is led by the Working Group Baptism of Children.

First Holy Communion

If they feel ready for it, children frequenting the family Mass can receive the First Holy Communion in an extra festive celebration.

Holy Baptism (adults) and Holy Confirmation

The Holy Baptism is administered to adults on Easter Saturday Evening. The Holy Confirmation is administered to people aged 16 and over, in the period after Easter, by the bishop or his representative. Preparation on both sacraments takes place through some preparatory rites and during a short course starting in November annually.
