  • Everything is nice... If you're interested in architecture, you will see a beautiful building... But if you go for the mass, everything is even more beautiful! The quality and warmth of the speech after the Gospel is always amazingly beautiful... And the community is always welcoming and super sweet ♥️ I can say that this is, by far, my happiest place ♥️
  • Visit for the beauty of the interior, not necessarily for the quality of the worship experience. Stained glass windows are remarkable as well as the Christ on the cross hanging above the altar. The hoge mis (high mass) is very stilted and the incense will over power you, so sit in the back. I felt that the music, though well executed, was haunting and not joyful. Though the words were about joy and clapping your hands, it was sung very sadly. There is an English language pamphlet to accompany the Latin. There is no translation of the Dutch language homily. Needless to say, it is dominated by male clergy. Even the Scriptures were read by priests rather than lay leaders. So, no women participated in the mass.
