THE BANNER
This Sunday  evening at 5 PM we will once again welcome the Abbot, Prior, and monks of St. Louis Abbey to The Church of St. Michael & St. George as they lead us in worship and sing Latin Eastertide Vespers. This liturgy is a part of our ongoing ecumenical relationship with the Abbey and one of the opportunities we have each season to worship with the monks. Please plan to join us and experience the beauty of the ancient monastic office sung as it has been for over a thousand years. A reception to honor the monks will follow.
