Archdiocese Kicks Off STL250 with Mass on Dec. 31
From the Archdiocese:
In 2014, the city of St. Louis will celebrate its 250th anniversary. 2014 will also mark the 800th birthday of our most holy patron, Saint Louis IX, King of France.
As part of the year-long celebration to commemorate the founding of St. Louis and the birth of our beloved patron, the Archdiocese of St. Louis is partnering with the group, STL250, to host special events throughout 2014.
More information will follow in the months to come, but mark your calendars now for a very special way to usher in the new year…
At 11:00 p.m. on December 31, 2013, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, the Most Reverend, Edward M. Rice will offer a New Year's Eve Holy Hour and [Ordinary Form] Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis for anyone interested in participating in a “spiritual kick-off” to the city's 250th anniversary. All are welcome.
