Summary

Reportage about the ninth ‘Catholic Day’ in Nijmegen.

This reportage opens with urban images of Nijmegen, including shots of the park Het Valkhof, the St. Stevens Church, and the Waag. These images are followed by the celebration of the ninth ‘Catholic Day’ on September 23, 1917, with shots of people departing from the Roman Catholic church, the procession of various associations to the Monseigneur Hamer monument, and the speech given by Mr. N.H.M. Franken to a large crowd. Wreaths and flowers are placed by the monument. A number of Catholic dignitaries then leave by car or coach.

As a bonus, the reportage ends with a shot of the Familie Bioskoop, which, we learn, has commissioned the film. The doors are opened, and a text advertisement announces which films will be running that week.
