Coronation Newsletter 24- month of September 2023


The summer vacation is over. The time goes fast. If you want to reminisce, be sure to visit the Difoto exhibition and you can attend 1 of the 3 film screenings of the evening play. In this newsletter we also look ahead to the closing of the Coronation Year 2023. We invite everyone to join the Procession of Light and place a candle an window or door.

In this way we will not only create a course for the light procession, but also express support for each other: #seek connection.

The most important thing, however, is that we march together in communion with one another.
