“Cathedral on the IJ” to be honoured tomorrow

Amsterdam’s iconic church of St. Nicholas – a striking landmark for anyone exiting the capital’s central train station – will be especially honoured tomorrow. Some news was accidentally announced earlier this afternoon via the parish’s Twitter account, but soon retracted, as it was not intended to be released until tomorrow, when an official announcement will be made. More details will follow at that time, then.

I'm a 37-year-old lay Catholic from the diocese of Groningen-Leeuwarden. I write about the Catholic Church in the Netherlands. I not only enjoy bringing selected developments to the attention of readers, but I also think that it is sometimes important to allow a wider audience to read about the state of the Church in the Netherlands. That's why a fair number of posts about that topic will be translations of Dutch articles, episcopal writings and whatever else.
