Music and Meditation: Retreat in Kewanee Begins Sunday
Our annual Christmas Choral Vespers is Sunday night at 7:00. Weather is supposed to be fine, so everything's on track. All we need is people to come. So make your plans today, and give yourself a treat. This has been a major cultural event for our parish as well as an uplifting edifying experience. Our neo-gothic style church enables our small and talented choir to sound as if it has more voices. This is our thirteenth annual January choral vespers.
The event is always followed with a wine and cheese reception.
The next two days (count 'em, two!) we'll be having a seminar of Theological Reflection, which includes Holy Mass on both days, the second being Epiphany Day, January 6th. The Theme for the retreat is “A Prophet Like unto Me: The Christology of the Moses and the Exodus.” We'll look at the first several chapters of the Book of Exodus in the Patristic/Medieval manner which involves seeking Christ in all the Scriptures, as the old rhyme puts it: "In the Old is concealed what the New has revealed."
Join us! Here's your map, here's your hotel, and here's your invitation!
