Katarínka Open days 5.7.2013 - report

This year's Katarínka Open days, twelfth in order, has been welcomed by most participants in its history. Katarínka is a beautiful place which is worth to visit. The group of volunteers has prepared a special program on the 5. July on the Feast of St. Cyril and Method.

The following was available for around 1000 enthusiasts and visitors:

  • historic tourist service upon Katarínka ruins,
  • 12 different historic workshops and competitions with children,

The top item on the agenda was a festive mass accompanied by a traditional Katarínka band called s. Katerína.

The mass was celebrated by Felix Mária OFM, known in Katarínka as brother Zénius and concelebrated by brother Medus – Mário Bosý (a local priest designated to shepherding youth in Trnava's diocese). A special guest during the mass was brother Jordán – Juraj Dovala (a bishop of Czechoslovak Hussite Church) – who came up with a beautiful intercession.

  

The founder of civil association Katarínka, Benignus - Peter Herceg, came up with plans for future periods: „Čaká nás zahájenie výstavby schodiska do veže, ktoré má slúžiť budúcim návštevníkom a turistom, aby aj oni zažili ten pekný výhľad na rozľahlé okolie a končiny. Ďalej to bude nová etapa konzervovania kláštorných múrov, či odkrývanie nových archeologických nálezísk v lodi kostola.“
