The European Torch of Religious Heritage in Mont-devant-Sassey (France)

The European Torch of Religious Heritage in Mont-devant-Sassey (France)

Saturday 02 June 2018

On Saturday 2 June 2018, the European Torch of Religious Heritage made a stopover in Mont-devant-Sassey (Meuse - Lorraine) as part of its journey around the continent. Many personalities were on hand for a fantastic spotlight on the church of Notre-Dame de l'Assomption (which dates back to the 12th and probably the 8th century), brought back to life by a dynamic association and a group of specially motivated "Young Heritage Ambassadors". 

The famous journalist Stéphane Bern, "Heritage" adviser to the President of the Republic, hoped to be able to participate in the ceremony. His contribution finally took the form of a particularly explicit video. Thanks also to the Minister of Culture, MP E. Cariou, the representatives of the Grand East Region and all the cultural actors of Lorraine and Meuse for their support, not to mention the Bishop of Verdun and the many "Friends of the Church of Mont-devant-Sassey"!

The contributions read during this ceremony will enable the European network Future for Religious Heritage to raise awareness among the EU authorities of the importance of this threatened and particularly symbolic heritage.
