A remarkable architectural masterpiece and one of the most important sites for Catholicism in Europe, Notre Dame de Paris is an iconic monument in the capital.
To celebrate Christmas a special programme has been organised for the general public until 2 February, combining celebrations, mangers, vigils and concerts.
Unmissable services for all the faithful, the messes are at the heart of the Notre Dame’s programme for this Christmas.
On 24 and 25 December, there will be many celebrations under the cathedral’s nave: international mess, Christmas vigil, Midnight mass, evensong… contemplation and prayers will blend with the musical emotions produced in turn by the great organs and the choirs. Several musical events will be organised. Concerts, recitals, choir singing, enhanced by the exceptional setting, promise music lovers some wonderful moments of enchantment.
The cathedral’s manger, like the Christmas tree on the forecourt, will both be in place until 2 February, inviting visitors to contemplate or even meditate.
From Masses to concerts, with the choirs breaking out into song, just as with the silent communions, Christmas will be religious.
