Every catholic church holds paintings or statues that depict the sequence of stations or steps between Jesus' persecution and His crucifixion and entombment. The object of these Stations is to help the faithful to make a spiritual pilgrimage of prayer, through meditating upon the chief scenes of Christ's sufferings and death. It has become one of the most popular devotions for Roman Catholics, usually held on friday in anticipation on 'Good Friday', the day we remember Jesus' crucifixion.

Dates: Friday-evenings March 7th, 14th, 21th and 28th, April 4th and 11th.
Time: 18.00-19.00 hrs
Place: Church 'Johannes de Doper', Bergstraat 17 Wageningen
Information: Sophie Ngala ( and Fusta Azupogo (

Volunteer at the ICC!

Perhaps you're new in the parish, or maybe you’ve been around for quite some time already? Maybe you used to be active in your previous parish? You're very welcome to help out in the parish and the ICC!

As the apostle Paul wisely writes:

"There are various kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are various kinds of service, and the same Lord. There are various kinds of workings, but the same God, who works all things in all. But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the profit of all." 

A community can come to bloom if we share with each other our God given talent and faith.

If you like to help out in the parish and the ICC, please don't hesitate and let me know. There are different tasks that you might find interesting:

Choirs and Cantors

Every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month we celebrate an International mass. On the 2nd Sunday the International Choir always sings. Maybe you like to join them?

On the 4th Sunday we have a variation of choirs and cantors. With frequency the Indonesian Choir sings, but you're as well invited to sing on the 4th Sunday. Perhaps you can form a small choir? Perhaps you like to sing as a cantor?

Welcome Group

With frequency new (international) parishioners join our community. It's good and kind to welcome them, to make them feel at home. If they're new in the Netherlands it's also nice if someone can explain them a bit about the church and the culture, or tell them about Wageningen.

Maybe this is something for you?

Meeting Group

After the mass we always meet for a drink and a talk together, some people even bring something (sweet) to eat. We need a couple more volunteers to prepare coffee and tea, and afterwards to tidy up the room. You can always ask others to help.

Leisure and Activity Group

Prayer and celebration is important, but it's also nice to simply do something together, or to deepen our faith through reflection and discussion. A community needs liturgy, but also catechesis, diacony and alternative activities to meet each other in friendship and faith. Think about a casual meeting with some music, food and drink in the big meeting-room, or a trip to a museum, a pilgrimage, Lectures during the Lent, a walk through nature and more.

Ideas are always welcome, and maybe some of you like to help organize and coordinate this?
