Solemn Vespers from the Toronto Oratory

Some video was sent to the NLM from Solemn Vespers at the Toronto Oratory, which is celebrated at their parish of Holy Family Church every Sunday evening at 5:00pm, followed by Solemn Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

I know a number of our readership have commented of late that they would be interested in reading and seeing more on the Divine Office. The NLM is happy to oblige in this regard, sharing your enthusiasm for this, most especially as it relates to the public, sung celebration of the Office in both Cathedral and parish settings.

This is most certainly something we should seek to foster and promote as part of a new liturgical movement. (In fact, if parish priests have stories to share of beginning parish vespers; or if priests are looking for advice upon starting it; or if readers generally have video and photos to share, please do send them in to us.)
