On Wednesday 30th September, Fr. Sjaak was installed as a Board member of Society De Witte in The Hague. During the open members meeting in which the 3400 members could voice their opinions, the vote was supported by a 90% agreement. Besides this new task, Fr. Sjaak also holds a seat on the Supervisory Board of the international development aid organisation CORDAID, the Board of Brasilia/Auxilia, our own Parish Board, and is a member of the European Pastor’s Symposium for English speaking parishes. How does a busy man find time for all this? Just by truly believing that “The Lord always provides”.
Ash Wednesday is on 14 February. Mass with distribution of ashes will take place at 19:00 in the church.
