The Feast of St Louis at the Oratory of Ss Gregory and Augustine

We are very glad to share these pictures from the Oratory of Ss Gregory and Augustine in St Louis, Missouri, of the celebrations of the city’s patron Saint at the end of August: solemn Vespers on the eve of the feast, and solemn Mass on the day itself, followed by a procession to the statue of St Louis in Forest Park. Once, again, we can see that these young people have no time for nostalgia; they are too busy building the city of God and evangelizing through beauty - Feliciter! Many thanks to Kiera Petrick for sharing these photos with us.

First Vespers and Benediction
Solemn Mass
Here we can see the very nice palanquin which the Oratory had made so that the first class relic of St Louis could be carried in this annual procession; we wrote about how it was made earlier this year.
