Church of Our Lady "Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk"

We are happy to be a guest in the beautiful Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk. It is warm, devout and the church is close to the bid route.

Around 21:05 hours we will arrive at the parking lot on the Westermarkt. We walk to the church (3 minutes), which lies on the Keizersgracht. There are toilets available there. In the back of the church is a bust of our fellow townsman, the blessed Peter Donders, since the church used to be of the Redemptorists. Now Opus Dei is responsible for the pastoral care.


Eucharistic celebration

At 21:30h the Holy Mass will commence, in the normal rite. We celebrate together with other companies (including Nijmegen and Haarlem)


After the Eucharistic celebration we walk to the starting point of the Ommegangs route. Together we walk from about 22.45 hours.

We walk the way in silence, praying.

If someone unexpectedly misses the connection with the group, he / she should contact the members of the organization who provide the route.

It is good to know that we are walking for about an hour. You have to be able to do that without too much trouble. We are on the road from 5 pm. That means you have to bring your own snacks / sandwiches for the bus.

Departure from Amsterdam   

After the procession (around 00:00h), we will go together to the parking lot where the bus is waiting. Please make sure nothing is left behind in the church or in the bus. Expected arrival time in Tilburg is 02.00 am.
