The vespers were led by the Bishop of České Budějovice, Vlastimil Kročil, and began at 5 PM in the Milevská basilica of the Visitation of the Virgin Mary. Our Strahov schola was invited to lead and accompany the vespers with choral singing. Believers from the surrounding area were also invited, and a significant number accepted the invitation.

You can immerse yourself in the atmosphere of this exceptional celebration through several photographs in the gallery. We traditionally thank Brother Václav for taking them.
