– Fire of Notre-Dame: Emmanuel Macron will receive firefighters Thursday at noon



The celebrations of the Holy Week in Paris initially planned for Notre-Dame de Paris will be held in the Saint-Sulpice church and in the Sainte-Eustache church.

On Wednesday, the Chrism Mass will take place at 6.30 pm in the church of Saint-Sulpice (6th arrondissement), the largest church in Paris after Notre-Dame, which can hold at least 2,000 people. A giant screen will be erected in the courtyard for those who can not enter.

In this mass, the archbishop of Paris, bishop Michel Aupetit, "consecrates the holy chrism (oil used in certain sacraments, ed) and blesses the oil of the sick and the oil of catechumens" (adults receiving baptism, ndlr), indicates the diocese. "The bishops and all the priests renew their commitment." Thursday evening, the Mass of the Last Supper will also be held at Saint-Sulpice as well as the Office of the Cross on Friday night as well as the Easter Vigil on Saturday night.

The Easter Mass, usually held at Notre-Dame, will be held on Sunday at the Church of Saint-Eustache (1st arrondissement) with Bishop Aupetit. It expects 2,000 people for this celebration, which precedes the Urbi and Orbi blessing pronounced by Pope Francis, from St. Peter's Square in Rome to the Vatican.
