Diocesan Feast in Lohja and Stella Maris on Saturday, August 10
Welcome to the Diocesan Feast!
The celebrations will begin with a Pontifical Mass in the medieval Saint Lawrence Church in Lohja at 10.30. Before Mass, there is opportunity for confession.
After the Mass, the feast will continue at Stella Maris with lunch at 13.00, a lecture on the Year of Faith at 14.00, Marian procession and prayer at 15.00, and farewell coffee at 16.00. Confession is possible also at Stella Maris.
Please join us so we can build our Diocese together! Please let the parish know if you are coming (even if you come by private car). The parish office will also provide information about transport arrangements for those who wish to book a seat on the bus from the parish. The bus leaves St. Henry's at 9. a.m. (not at 9,30 as previously advertised).
NEW! You can now sign up to the Diocesan Feast by filling in this form.
Our Site is Growing
Little by little, the website project of St. Henry's Cathedral Parish is moving forward. Now we have published pages on the Rosary in Finnish, Swedish and English.
The Parish Information page answers your questions. You will find information about catechism classes, the Cathedral's history and its art and architecture as well as on how to contribute to the Church. On the Activities page you can read about some of the activities going on in the Cathedral Parish.
First Communion in BUU-klubben
On Monday, June 3rd 2013, the Finnish Broadcasting Company's Swedish-language TV channel Yle FEM aired a segment on First Communion in their children's programme BUU-klubben. The footage for Min högtid: Första kommunion (or roughly My celebration: First Communion) was shot at St. Henry's Cathedral Parish in the spring of 2012.

On a very sunny first Sunday of June, St. Henry's Cathedral Parish celebrated Corpus Christi with a procession after the High Mass. Bishop Teemu Sippo SCJ carried the Blessed Sacrament in a monstrance under a baldachin along Tehtaankatu, down Raatimiehenkatu (pictured) and back towards the Cathedral along Puistokatu. The procession was followed by a Benediction with the Blessed Sacrament.
