Let us celebrate St. Olav!

I would like to encourage everyone in St. Olav Parish to participate in this year’s Olsok celebration in Trondheim and at Stiklestad, says parish priest Egil Mogstad. The opening mass in our new cathedral, the Olsok Mass in Nidarosdomen, and last but not least the pilgrimage to Stiklestad and mass in Stiklestad Church are important events that call for our participation.

Saint Olav is patron saint of our parish, our city, Norway and the Nordic countries. We Catholics who live in Trondheim have a certain calling to stay close to Olav, and to encourage others to do the same. Our knowledge of and devotion towards Olav is nourished by the liturgical celebrations during the St. Olav Feast, says p. Egil.

The Olsok Mass in Nidaros Cathedral 29 July begins at 2.30pm. Please arrive early to find a seat.  At Stiklestad on 30. July there is a procession at 2:30pm, followed by mass in Stiklestad church at 3:30pm.
