This Wednesday we are meeting for the fifth Holy Hour organized by members of our student parish. This week we will start at around 8:30 pm, depending on how long the mass is beforehand (as baptism and confirmation will take place during). Join us at the Salvatorkerk, located at Van Starkenborghstraat 1, 9721 EA, Groningen

This Thursday will be for both Dutch and English speakers. Mass, starting at 7 pm will be in Dutch, and at 8 pm we will watch a documentary in English (Dutch subtitles).
We will be watching Bishop Barron’s documentary series on Catholicism, with a special focus on Mary. In this episode, Bishop Barron masterfully correlates the Catholic Faith’s testimony of the revelation of God in Christ with the vivid practices of reverence offered to his Mother. Mary is explained as “an ongoing presence, an actor in the life of the Church”. Bishop Barron journeys to the humble remains of Mary’s house in Nazareth, to the ruins of the ancient city of Ephesus, and to the great Marian shrines of Lourdes and Guadalupe to explain the Church’s teachings about Mary as the Mother of God, the Immaculate Conception and the dogma of the Assumption.
