Since 2006, the Agnes Church in Amsterdam the Mass according to the extraordinary form of the Roman rite dedicated. In 2009 trusted Mgr. Point, Bishop of Haarlem-Amsterdam, the ministry in the church to priests of Peter Brotherhood. Now the diocese has decided to make the church a full "personal parish" to make. The motu proprio Summorum Pontificum makes it possible to legal faithful who are attached to the extraordinary form to unite. Any Catholic who feels involved in the old rite can be registered as a parishioner. A personal parish has the same rights and obligations as an ordinary (territorial) parish, including its own pastor. The new parish will be dedicated to the Blessed Emperor Charles of Austria.
