Mass Times

The Saint-Sauveur cathedral popularly called the Aix athedral is located in 34 Place Des Martyrs de la Resistance in Aix-en-Provence.

Although in recent years Christians and non-Christians visit the cathedral as a tourist destination of some sort, the fact still remains that the Saint-Sauveur cathedral is a place of worship for Catholics.

Cathedrals are usually comparable to basilicas which are generally erected over the tomb of a saint. Like every other Catholic place of worship, several activities are held in this cathedral in line with the Catholic liturgical calendar. This includes daily masses. If you spend time in Aix-en-Provence,you can easily attend mass at the Aix Cathedral because masses are held on a daily basis.

From the first of January 2018 to the last day of the month of December in the same year, the cathedral will be open from 8 am to 7:30 pm.

The opening of the cathedral also marks the beginning of mass. In other words, weekday masses are held in this cathedral from 8:00 am.

There are usually three masses on Sundays. The first mass takes place by 9:00 am. The second is by 10:30 am and the last is by 7:00 pm. If you don’t wake up early for the first mass or you are too busy you can go for the second or third. Masses are not held on Saturdays in the Aix Cathedral.If you sincerely desire to attend mass on Saturdays, there are a few places you can try—although the majority of the masses are held in the evening. These include Saint Espirit (6:00 pm), Saint Jean-Baptiste (5:00 pm), Saint Jean de Malte (6:00 pm), Sainte Marie Madeleine (6:00 pm), and Les Oblats (11:00 am). Apart from the weekday masses, there are lots of other devotional activities that happen in the cathedral daily.
