On Sunday, one goes to church. Therefore, the group was more than welcome at the special Harvest service, that was performed partly in English and partly in the local language.

All the participants briefly introduced themselves in front of the big catholic community that filled the hall.

Afterwards an auction was held, of which the proceeds went to the entire community. Some of the participants helped the cause by selling raffles.

A little street in a little fortified town in Noord-Holland. Very different from the scenery in Father Vitus’ surroundings.
