Grand Duke and Duchess Attend Episcopal Consecration *

So, now Luxembourg has a new archbishop. The Differdange-born Jean-Claude Hollerich was consecrated to become the 8th bishop and 3rd archbishop of the archdiocese of Luxembourg during a three-hour-long mass conducted in Luxembourgish, French, German, English and Japanese. Among the attendees of the church service were Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa.

For those who weren't able to sneak a peak of the episcopal consecration in the Cathédrale Notre-Dame, here are a few links to catch up. A short video and photos are available at; a constantly updated, large gallery of pictures is offered by the Église catholique à Luxembourg in their Picasa photostream; Wort has another gallery of pictures. RTL has an article with pictures about the event, as do most of the Lux newspapers; an immensely large gallery can also be found on, as can be a video. And of course there is the fabulous Manuel Dias on whom we can always rely to have about the best pictures of an event.
