Paris Archbishop unveils celebrations for Notre Dame Cathedral reopening

Ten months before the reopening of the Cathedral of Notre Dame, Archbishop Laurent Ulrich presented the schedule for the inauguration of the French capital’s Gothic masterpiece, scheduled for December 8, 2024.

The reopening period will include numerous celebrations and pilgrimages and will extend from December 8, 2024, to June 8, 2025, the feast of Pentecost, as the universal Church follows the rhythm of the 2025 Jubilee.

The Archbishop of Paris announced the initiatives in a pastoral letter published on 2 February, inviting the faithful to celebrate the Cathedral’s re-inauguration after a fire gutted it on April 15, 2019.

Fifteen days before the church’s reopening, a large procession will accompany the return of the image of Notre Dame to the Cathedral along the streets of Paris.
