The first Mass in Notre-Dame de Paris since the cathedral's April fire will be said Saturday evening in a side chapel that houses the crown of thorns.
The June 15 Mass will be of the feast of the dedication of Notre-Dame, which is held June 16. It will be said by Archbishop Michel Aupetit of Paris.
"It is very important to be able to make the world aware that the role of the cathedral is to show the glory of God," said Msgr. Patrick Chauvet, rector of the cathedral.
"Celebrating the Eucharist on that day, even in very small groups, will be the sign of this glory and grace," he told La Croix International.
