Solemn Choral Vespers For The Octave Of Easter. Saturday, 2 April 2016, 5.15 p.m. The Monastery Of The Holy Cross, Chicago.


The Monastery of The Holy Cross in Chicago, a Traditional Benedictine Monastery of The Subiaco-Cassinese Congregation, will Celebrate a special Solemn First Vespers for The Octave Day of Easter on Saturday, 2 April 2016, at 5:15 p.m.

Over the past decade, the Choirmaster and Prior, Peter Funk O.S.B., a University of Chicago-trained Choral Conductor and Composer, has taught the Monks to chant all the Ordinaries and Propers of The Mass and all the Antiphons, Hymns and Responsories of The Office. The culmination of these labours is a new Solemn Choral Vespers series, which offers perhaps the richest expression of their Founding Charism, to Evangelize through The Liturgy.
