SSPX Building in Holland: New Chapel

Edit: the following is a report from the SSPX German site on a new, and in some senses symbolic, development.

[] For almost 25 years the ship "Christina" has served the faithful of the Society of St. Pius X in the Netherlands as a chapel.
In the truest sense of the word, a "church-ship". Only the Society has receeived a new ship in the Netherlands, which will serve them as a chapel.
Leiden is a city with less than 120,000 inhabitants and lies northwest from The Haag. The chapel should, exactly like the church-ship, will be consecrated and receive as its patroness, "Our Dear Lady of the Rosary". The church-ship will lose its function and be decomissioned. An end can also be a beginning. Here's a photogallery of ships that have served as churches...
