More about Kevelaer
I would like to know if there are catholic vigil mass services on saturday evening 23 of october,if so which churches and what time in Kevelaer
will give you the websites for Catholic churches in Kevelaar.
If you click on 'gottesdienste' you will see the normal mass times. Explore the sites to see if there are special vigils on 23rd. Some are, of course, in German so
might be a useful translation tool.
Well, I'll put my German to good use.
When you use the link that leics provided, you may still have to put in Kevelaer in the search box, since I got only churches in the UK when I clicked it.
Anyway, for Saturdays:
Mass at 17.45 at St. Antonius
This is an English version website of the Basilica pilgrimage church in Kevelaer: http://www.wallfahrt-kevelaer.de (click the EN version).
Saturday 18.30hrs in the St.-Marien-Basilika
Every day (thus also Saturday): Vesper at 18 hrs in the Candle Chapel (Kerzenkapelle)
Sorry about the link AT and original poster.
I went to the masstimes site and seached for kevelaar. Perhaps their specific page links don't change from search place to search place?
Or maybe that link includes my own special code as a user....that would explain the 'UK' thing (I looked at no UK pages). Apologies again.
Don't apologise, silly! Your link helped me to make the info more complete. A nice co-operation!
Travel Tips for Kevelaer
Weeze airport is just one village and a few kilometres away from Kevelaer. In case you need a place to stay near the airport, there is more or less nothing in Weeze itself but next-door Kevelaer has much more to offer, both in terms of things to see and also accommodation and restaurants – a place that receives hundred thousands of visitors per year provides everything you’ll need. However, on the big catholic holidays, especially those of the Virgin Mary, finding a place to stay in Kevelaer may be difficult.
The Pope’s Visit in 1987 – the Pope Door
In 1987 Pope John Paul II visited Kevelaer to participate in a church congress and to pray at the pilgrimage sites. An ancient liturgy requires him to knock at the door of the church with a hammer to be let in. The bronze side door of the basilica shows this scene.
A special stamp with the image of the Madonna and the buildings of Kevelaer has been issued to honour the occasion. It shows the sacred image of the madonna above the churches and other buildings of Kevelaer.
Walking around Kapellenplatz!
A nice thing to do is walking around Kapellenplatz where all pelgrims walk from chapel to chapel lighting candles!
I allways wonder: What are people expecting from these pelgrimages? For themselves? For the world?
Will you become a better person of it?
I must honoustly say I don't know I only visited because of the playmobil exhibition in the local museum.
I liked visiting this place, but I must confess I would'nt come here for a pelgrimage.
The Chapel of Grace - part I
The old chapel built by Hendrik Husman had been replaced in 1684 by a new chapel.
The new chapel, called the Chapel of Grace has a hexagonal dome structure.
The paintings inside the chapel are in neo-renaissance style.
"Beichtkapelle" - The Confessional Chapel
The entrance to the Confessional Chapel can be found in the Fountain Courtyard, on the sacristy side of the Basilica. The Confessional Chapel, built in 1857, houses now the cloister with the penitential cells.
