Paris Day 1: Notre Dame Cathedral, Saints Chapelle over 1,000 Stained Glass windows) and Sacré Couers (Sacred Heart)
by Steve Ray on June 10, 2019
Our first day in Paris was filled with activities and wondrous sites. First, everyone woke up to the Eiffel Tower just outside our hotel and then a bountiful breakfast.
We originally had Mass scheduled at the Notre Dame Cathedral but since the fire we had to change it to Sacré Couer. But we are taking a tour of the outside of the Notre Dame Cathedral and also the Sainte Chapelle which has over 1000 Stainglass windows and what was the chapel of the Kings.
Next we took the steep tram up to the Montmartre area for a spectacular view of Paris and free time to enjoy the town and lunch.
We then toured Sacred Heart Basilica (Sacré Couer) and had Mass there (homily here). Back to the hotel for the rest of the afternoon and evening free. Fantastic day!
