Holland Fetes Its First Apostle

From Our Own Correspondent


Celebrations of the twelfth centenary of the death of St. Willibrord are taking place this year in all parts of Holland.

Last Sunday the feast was kept in his own parish of Bakel, in North Brabant, with a Pontifical High Mass sung by the Bishop of Bois-le-Duc (or 's-Hertogenbosch, which is the Dutch name of the city and diocese) and a procession through the village showing five periods in the history of the district; namely, heathendom, the arrival of the Saint, the Middle Ages, the time of trial and the renewal and blossoming of Catholic Faith and practice.

A St. Willibrord exhibition is being opened at Utrecht this week, of which a description will follow in time for the next issue of the CATHOLIC HERALD.
