2018 Advent Day of Recollection
The earth rejoices in hope of the Savior's coming and looks forward with longing to his return at the end of time. Reflect on the season of Advent and prepare for the God who waits for you. Parishioners, guests, and all throughout the archdiocese are invited to join Archbishop Robert Carlson and the clergy and parishioners of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis for an Advent Day of Recollection on Saturday, December 8, 2018. The day begins at 9:30 a.m. with a special Mass for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. The first of two spiritual conferences led by Archbishop Carlson will begin at 10:30 a.m. Each conference will be followed by exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and an opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The day will end with evening vespers at 4:30 p.m. and the celebration of Mass at 5:00 p.m. All conferences and prayer will be held in the Cathedral Basilica, with a hot lunch provided for all in Boland Hall. This special gathering is free to all (good will offerings to help offset the cost of lunch will be gratefully accepted). Though a free event, organizers request advance registration to properly prepare worship materials and set up for lunch. To register or for additional information, please contact Mary Ann Fox at 314-373-8208.
