Notre Dame Cathedral will not hold a Christmas Mass for the first time in 200 years, due to the huge fire it suffered at the beginning of the year, which had suffered heavy losses. Church spokesman André Finot said Sunday that for the first time since 1803, the 850-year-old Cathedral Mass will not be held.
The Cathedral, one of the unicorns’ global heritage, caught fire in April, causing extensive damage. For the last 200 years, it has been open on the occasion of Christmas, even when the Nazis were captured during World War II. French prosecutors said in June that the cause of the fire could be cigarette burns or short circuits.
Officials said that there may have been negligence in it and an investigation into the incident has been initiated.
Let us tell you that President Emmanuel Macron has resolved to rebuild the 13th-century landmark Cathedral in the next 5 years.
