Prayer celebrations and corona

17 January 2022 09:00

At the start of the pilgrimage Walk for Homs, I was allowed to have an audience with Bishop De Korte and then also to visit Bishop Hendrik. Two wonderful experiences that I will not soon forget. The idea was to have a special mass on April 5 and April 10 in memory of my uncle, to remember the people in Syria and to say goodbye to the walkers and welcome them back during Walk for Homs. I'm already looking forward to it. On December 21, we had our first online consultation with the working group about the implementation of the prayer celebrations. It became immediately clear to me that the special mass was going to be more, but a prayer celebration. This is because everyone is welcome.

Amsterdam prayer Celebration

The prayer service in Amsterdam will take place from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. We ask all visitors to be there by 08:45, so that we can start at 09:00. The first rows in the church will be reserved for walkers and the Van der Lugt family.

's-Hertogenbosch prayer Celebration

The prayer service in 's-Hertogenbosch will take place from 4.30 pm - 5.30 pm. We ask all visitors to be present between 16.00 - 16.15, so that the walkers can be welcomed by everyone at 16.30. The first rows in the church will be reserved for the walkers and the Van der Lugt family.

To reserve 

To attend the prayer celebrations, we ask everyone to reserve a place because of the lack of space. corona a donation of 15 euros must be made here. This amount is spent on the projects we support. It is possible to reserve a place until April 1. If this is done before March 1, you will receive a nice souvenir upon arrival and upon presentation of the reservation.


If it is the case that a maximum number of visitors may be allowed in the church due to corona, we will make a selection based on the number of walkers participating and the date of reservation. Whoever registers first has the best chance of being able to attend. For those for whom it is not possible to physically attend the prayer celebration, we will see if this is possible online. The donations will not be returned.

If the Walk for Homs cannot go on at all in April, we will move this pilgrimage and with it the prayer celebrations.

Of course we will inform everyone personally in the week before the prayer service what the intention is.
