St. Olav menighets segl

St. Olav Catholic Cathedral Parish, Trondheim


The great event is coming soon!

On Friday 12 October a transport with relics that lately have been traveling all over Northern Europe, will arrive in Trondheim. By now the news have hopefully reached most Catholics in Trondheim, that the relics of Thérèse of Lisieux, one of the great saints of the Catholic Church, will be visiting St. Olav Cathedral together with her parents’.

If we imagine something similar happening with the religuary of St. Olav of Nidaros hundreds of years ago, we may get an idea of the significance of this event. During an extensive program from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 October we will have the opportunity to honor the relics in St. Olav cathedral.
