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

Nocturnal Eucharistic Adoration

Every week the ICC organizes a nocturnal Eucharistic adoration. Never heard of it or you like to join? Read further for more information.

The Eucharistic Adoration is an old practice in which the blessed Sacrament or Host is exposed to and adored by the faithful who attend and pray in silence. It's often associated with Jesus' invitation to Peter, James and John to accompany Him to Gethsemane for silent prayer during the night. This turned out to be a hard task, because the three disciples fell asleep repeatedly!

Adoration is a sign of devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ, who is believed to be sacramentally truly present under the appearance of the consecrated bread.

Every Tuesday and Saturday
Time: From 19.00 hrs until 23.00 hrs
Place: Chapel Johannes de Doperkerk, Bergstraat 17, Wageningen
Participate: If you like to participate for one or more hours or if you have questions,  just contact: or

Off course you are always free to enter the chapel.

Tantum Ergo

Tantum ergo are the opening words of the last two verses of a Latin hymn written by St. Thomas Aquinas. These verses are sung during the veneration and benediction of the Blessed Scrament in the Roman Catholic Church:

Original text:

Tantum ergo Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui:
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui:
Praestet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui.

Genitori, Genitoque
Laus et jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio:
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio.


Down in adoration falling,
Lo! the sacred Host we hail,
Lo! o'er ancient forms departing
Newer rites of grace prevail;
Faith for all defects supplying,
Where the feeble senses fail.

To the everlasting Father,
And the Son Who reigns on high
With the Holy Ghost proceeding
Forth from Each eternally,
Be salvation, honor, blessing,
Might and endless majesty.
