Tracing our Catholic Roots!

22.04. 2024 | Congregation life, News, Photos

 

Considering how small the parish is, the story of the Catholic Church on the Faroe Islands is quite remarkable, and sometime deeply moving.

Despite many obstacles and setbacks, our forbearers remained faithful to the practise of their faith and contributed much that is good to the society around them.

On Saturday, 20 April, Sr. Maria recounted something of this story. The talk was accompanied by several interesting photos. Handouts  were available in English and Danish.

Afterwards, light refreshments were served and there was time to chat. Then we drove to Kirkjubøur where Mass was celebrated in St. Olavskirkja at 16.00.hrs.

We prayed for all our parishioners and the future of our parish during Mass.
