Archbishop Carlson to Visit the Oratory-- in May and October

from the Oratory Newsletter:

In the coming months the Oratory will be honored with a number of Episcopal visits: His Grace, Archbishop Robert Carlson will visit the Oratory on Sunday, May 25, when he will be present at the 10:00 AM High Mass, and will preach the sermon.

Again on Sunday, October 19, Archbishop Carlson will come to the Oratory to take part in our celebration of the 800th birth anniversary of King St. Louis (Louis IX of France) and the 250th anniversary of the founding of the city of St. Louis that bears the holy saint’s name.

Throughout the year 2014, many civic as well as Catholic events will take place in St. Louis to highlight the history, development, and accomplishments of our great city. St. Francis de Sales will be part of these celebrations on October 19, 2014, honoring King Saint Louis and giving glory to God in a solemn procession with his holy relic, followed by solemn Vespers, Benediction and a sermon pronounced by the guest of honor on that day, His Grace, Archbishop Robert Carlson.

The program of Sunday, October 19, 2014, 5:00 PM:

Procession with Relic
Solemn Vespers
Homily pronounced by His Grace, Archbishop Carlson
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament
Reception in the Oratory Hall

Also in October: Confirmations have been scheduled for Saturday, October 11, 2014. The Oratory will welcome Bishop Robert Herman, who will administer the Sacrament of Confirmation at 10:30 AM.

More information will be forthcoming in the next few months on these Episcopal visits.

Please mark your calendars!

Long skirts, sorry for the delay in posting. I wanted to check the link first, and with all that was going on that took a while. Lichtenwalther is not a Catholic priest, and not a Catholic.
