Leave early

In 2018 we will leave on time as usual. We are happy to be guests in the beautiful Church of Our Lady (Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk).
It is warm, devout and the church is close to the procession route.

Church of Our Lady "Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk"

Around 18.45 we will arrive at the parking lot on the Westermarkt. We walk to the church, which is located on the Keizersgracht. There are toilets available. In the back of the church, there is a bust of our fellow townsman, the blessed Peter Donders, since the church used to be from the Redemptorists. Now Opus Dei is responsible for the pastoral care.


Eucharistic celebration

At 19.00 Holy Mass will begin, in the usual rite, with beautiful Gregorian songs.

Solemnly Praise and coffee

At 20.30 we celebrate in this church the Solemn Praise (not in Tilburg).
At 21.0o we drink coffee in the room next to the church.
At 22.00 we walk to the starting point of the procession route.


Around 22.30 we will start the procession. We walk in silence and praying. If someone unexpectedly misses the connection with the group, he/she should contact the members of the organization to indicate the route. It is good to know that we are walking for about an hour. You should be able to do it, without too much trouble.

Departure from Amsterdam   

After the procession, we will go together to the parking lot where the bus is waiting. Please make sure nothing is left behind in the church or in the bus. Expected arrival time in Tilburg is 01.30 am.
