PARIS, France (WTNH) — For the first time in more than 200 years, Notre Dame Cathedral will not hold a Christmas midnight service.
This comes months after the fire that devastated the landmark in April.
A spokesperson for the Cathedral says it hasn’t been closed on Christmas since 1803.
A midnight mass will be celebrated the night of Christmas Eve into Christmas morning at a nearby church.
French President Emmanuel Macron plans to have the cathedral rebuilt in five years.
