Church leaders are keen to show life goes on at the cathedral as donations to help rebuild it trickle in. A very small group of people will attend and one can understand why as there are still major safety issues," Culture Minister Franck Riester told Europe 1 radio. "There could be people who promised to donate then in the end did not," Riester said, without giving further details. French President Emmanuel Macron has set a target of five years for restoring the cathedral, though Riester was more cautious. The archbishop of Paris, Michel Aupetit will lead Saturday's service, which will be broadcast live on a religious TV channel.
