Via Pulchritudinis 2022-23

Imagine an aesthetic experience that hits you in the deepest of your hart and helps you to get closer to God. This is the aim of the study day of the VWHLL (which stands for Flemish Work Group of Contemporary Latin Liturgy) on Saturday March 4th, 2023 in Antwerp, Belgium.


At 11:00 a.m. Solemn Mass sung in Latin (according to the missal of 2002) will be celebrated in the Saint James church (Sint-Jacob, Sint-Jacobsstraat 9) of Antwerp. The choir Voces Capituli will enhance the liturgy with Gregorian and polyphonic chant. Free access.

Following the Mass, at 12:30 p.m. a lunch will be served nearby the church, at the school De Dames (@ € 20 pp, Lange Nieuwstraat 74): a bread meal with a bowl of soup. You need to register (see below) for lunch and conference.

After lunch, at 2:30 p.m., in the beautiful restored ship of the Saint James church, Rev. Fr. Patrick Lens will give a conference in Dutch about “Believe in the Holy Trinity: a new approach to the problem of the evil”. The access to the conference is included in the registration for lunch. Those who are not registered are invited to give a voluntary contribution for the conference into the appropriate baskets.

Finally, at 4:15 p.m., in the Saint James church (Sint-Jacob, Sint-Jacobsstraat 9), short adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament. Free access.
