Fr Henri, founding father and driving force of our ICC will be leaving us: cardinal Eijk has appealed him to accept a new appointment in Apeldoorn-Twello, about 45 km from Wageningen. As of January 1, he will be the  parish priest of the St Francis parish. 
Sad news for us, since we have to say goodbye, and so at the same time, happy news for the parish of Saint Francis, because they can enjoy the presence of our energetic, inspiring missionary and shepherd.
It is not yet known who will be his successor; however, we hope he can count on the hospitality we learned from Fr Henri and from each other.
Let us congratulate Fr Henri with his new appointment.
Let us pray that that his move will go well and that his new parish will bring him even more joy than ours! ;o)
In the meantime, let us enjoy his presence while he is still in Wageningen !
For your agenda
On Sunday January 8 there will be a special celebration to say goodbye to Fr Henri.

Want to learn some Dutch? Join the virtual "Kindercatechese"

Catechism films:
See: Dutch Facebook of our Parish
During the corona-crisis, Fr Henri and Fr Erik have been making catechism films for children every week. 
It turns out that adults also like them.
They are in Dutch (no subtitles).
Curious? There are catechism films for the whole year round.
Go to the Dutch Facebooksite of our Parish, and look for "videos".
An example: The first catechism of the Lent period

But there are many more:
About  Talents (Fr Erik appears to be a very sporty man!)  or  About Baptism, for instance
Learn what the relation is between this money and your baptism!

Corona Measures Parish


Most of the corona measures are in the freezer for the time being !
Exception: While wishing each other peace, don't shake hands.

There will still be parishioners, however, who have to keep distance or wear a face mask due to fragile health or for other reasons. We therefore ask everyone to continue to follow the hygiene rules, to continue to respect each other and to continue to take each other into account, so that everyone can feel welcome and can celebrate the liturgy in our church safely.

Thank you !
Thank all of you for your prayer, your patience and cooperation, and many thanks for all who have contributed in giving everybody the opportunity to visit our church in a safe way until now !
Let's pray the situation will continue to develop in a positive way.

Keep washing your hands, and stay at home when you feel sick. When you have to sneeze, do it in your arm-pit, etcetera, etcetera. I think you all know it by now.
Government measures may change, so keep an eye out for the ICC news flashes....
Thank you for your cooperation, and welcome in our church !

John Albers


Grateful to have known him

On Friday, March 4, John Albers passed away

Perhaps you have never met him; John was a member of the church council of our location Wageningen and chief sacristan for many years. 
In the background John has played an important role for our international community.
His enthusiastic, jovial, warm, involved, sincere personality will be missed enormously.
Last Friday many  said goodbye to John in a beautiful Holy Mass.

Would you please include John, his family and loved ones in your prayers?
