Colloquium Day 5: Mass at the Cathedral

The Sacred Music Colloquium ended Saturday morning with a Mass at the Shrine of St. Joseph, but we have a few more items to share from Friday.

That afternoon, Bishop Conley of Lincoln joined the Colloquium attendees at the magnificent Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis for Holy Mass, on the solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist.

Thanks to the Cathedral’s media apostolate, you can view archived video of the Mass at YouTube.  (Alas, the video resolution doesn't do justice to the glorious interior of the Cathedral Basilica.)

After the Mass, the clergy and laymen who served Mass during the week came together for a photograph:

After a break for dinner, attendees returned to the Cathedral for an organ recital by Ben Blasingame:

A beautiful day!
