In September 2015 Bishop Roald Nikolai visited two of the NCC parishes in France – Prieuré St. Charbel at Lye in the Loire valley and Prieuré Sainte-Marie at the foot of the Pyrénées.
At St. Charbel one recently baptised member, Laetitia, was chrismated during Sunday mass. It was a moving ceremony surrounded by members and friends of the confirmant. Moreover, the Bishop had fruitful talks with Fr. Alexandre Nevejans and the newly established parish council.
During the visit at Prieuré Sainte-Marie the Bishop was joined by the Episcopal Vicar, Fr. Alain Fraysse, for meetings and mass celebration in the richly decorated chapel of Fr. Jean-Bernard de Cazenave. After the liturgy the Parish Council gave a reception with participation also of the local mayor.
