Monsignor Gilles Wach, Prior General of the ICRSS, celebrated a beautiful Solemn High Mass at the Oratory last night to close the priestly retreat in St. Louis. In a nice treat for the Oratory faithful, Canon Aaron Huberfeld and Canon Jason Apple, both former Vicars here, filled the roles of Deacon and Subdeacon. I decided to show just how little I know of photography by posting these photos. Above, Monsignor Wach delivers the sermon.
Before Mass, one of the Oratory faithful was inducted into the Society of the Sacred Heart, and received the Cross of St. Francis de Sales from Monsignor Wach:
After Mass, the Institute family got together for a very pleasant reception in the hall. A lovely evening.
