PARIS — A Holy Thursday agency in Paris was held in Notre Dame cathedral, which is still under construction when it had been ravaged by fires only days before Easter in 2019, its spire crumbling in a shocking refuge.
The service included a foot-washing ritual which represents Jesus‘ willingness to function. Six worshipers were selected for the foot-washing machine, a varied group including medical personnel, the destitute and a few men and women that are put to be baptized this Easter.
Paris Bishop Michel Aupetit headed the rite, followed by Notre-Dame’s rector Patrick Chauvet.
Attendance in the ceremony was sharply restricted on account of the cathedral’s renovation and also the pandemic.
