The famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris will have its first holy mass this weekend since a fire destroyed the landmark cathedral two months ago said the city Diocese. The Archbishop of Paris Michael Aupetit will celebrate the mass. It will take place in a side chapel with restricted number of people for security reasons. Only 20 people including priests and deacons are expected to take part in the mass.
It will be broadcast live by a French Television channel and can be watched by Christians all over France. The date June 16th has been chosen as it is the Anniversary of the consecration of the cathedral’s altar. President of France Emmanuel Macron has set a target of five years for restoring the Cathedral to it’s original glory.
