Music and Meditation: Retreat in Kewanee Begins Sunday
As published in the most recent issue of Gottesdienst, St. Paul's' 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 fourteenth annual January choral vespers.
The event is always followed with a wine and cheese reception.
The next two days we'll be having a seminar of Theological Reflection, which begins with Holy Mass at 9 am on both days, and concludes on each day about 3:15. The Theme for the retreat is “He Shall Sit upon My Throne in My Stead”: The Christology of Solomon. It's a consideration of I Kings 1-11 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!
