Solemn Pontifical Mass, Sint-Agneskerk, Amsterdam

We have featured the lovely FSSP church of Sint-Agneskerk in Amsterdam many times before, including within our Other Modern series. Recently a reader wrote in to let us know of a Solemn Pontifical Mass (they tell us it is the first such offered by a Dutch prelate) celebrated there on January 20th by Mgr. J.G.M. van Burgsteden. Confirmations were celebrated.

We are told that it was also announced by the bishop that Sint-Agneskerk was now established as a personal parish dedicated to the usus antiquior.

Here are a few photos. (A few more here.)
