Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis | November 09 2018
Retreats provide the soul with renewed graces, certainly needed in today’s world, to keep us faithful and striving for sanctity. This year, treat yourself to a day away from the hustle and bustle and prepare for the God who waits for you. 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.
