It’s been two months since a fire devastated Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. And Saturday a small group of congregates – outfitted with hard hats to prevent injury from possible falling debris- held the first mass since April’s fire.
The mass commemorated the cathedral’s consecration as a place of worship and was held in a side-chapel left undamaged by the fire.
Attendance was limited to about 30 people.
Priests briefly parted with their hard hats during the communion.
The service was broadcast live on a religious tv channel that showed images of the blue sky through the collapsed roof and the black rubble still clogging the building.
