Next time you attend mass in St. Olav Cathedral and you join in the prayer which concludes  the Confession of Sins with the words: “I ask Blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the angels and saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God." - consider who you are asking. Who are they really these "my brothers and sisters", these 4729 individuals who have found their church here in St. Olav parish? The map will give you an idea of how world-wide we are, the list of nations will give you more details.

 

During the coming months we wish to present some of these people to you here on our web-site, but to do that we need contact with you. If you would like to be presented in a short interview, please contact the editors at <link>web@trondheim.katolsk.no
