New Priests for the Goede Herder Parish
One of the two priests of the Goede Herder Parish, Fr. Coert Biesjot, is leaving the Parish to live and work in a monastery in the east of the Netherlands.
He will be replaced by two priests: Pastor Henri Egging and Father Avin Kunnekkadan. Each of them for 50%.
Fr. Avin is going to live in Schiedam, together with some other members of his congregation. Fr. Avin will continue to say Mass for us every 4th and 5th Sunday of the month.
