Transcript for Notre Dame to hold first mass since devastating fire
Finally tonight here, after taking you inside notre dame cathedral after that devastating fire, we loved what we learned today. What's returning to the cathedral. One small step. Tonight, the new images, just today from Paris. Workers, some of them professional mountain climbers, hired to help restore the roof of notre dame cathedral. Saturday marked two months since the world gasped at this. The spire engulfed, collapsing right through the roof. We were the first invited in by the French general in charge of saving the cathedral. And we remember what he told us. You have been tasked with, well, some would say the impossible. Nothing is impossible to a French general. Reporter: And tonight, the first indication that that is they have now revealed the first mass since the fire will take place this Saturday, exactly two months later. I will be a small group, including priests and the archbishop. They will be wearing safety helmets, but it's a start. This is just remarkable this was we saw the stained glass, we walked up the stairs to see the great organ still intact, too. This is it. And tonight, that restoration, well under way. And we'll never forget seeing the statue of the vir min Mary that sat atop that pillar since the 14th century. No one has been able to sort of look at it at eye level until this moment. It's a privilege. Reporter: And a privilege this Saturday for that small group that will be allowed in, to pray, to offer thanks that the cathedral is being saved. And that symbol, the cross, that survived. Shining despite the fire. Reporter: Still intact. That mass this Saturday at notre dame cathedral. Thanks for watching here on a Thursday night. I'm David Muir. I hope to see you right back here tomorrow. Until then, have a good evening.
