First Vespers of the Assumption of the B.V.M.
with Gregorian chant psalmody.

Hebdomadary: Rev. Fr. Harry Neely, O.S.A. 

Join us as we open the Feast of the Assumption of the BVM with solemn Gregorian Chant evening prayer in the Traditional form. Fr. Harry Neely officiates. Translation booklets and hymn sheets will be freely available. There is no charge but donations are always gratefully accepted. This is our first Vespers  outing of 2011, so we hope to make it as special as we can, especially for Our Lady's most glorious feast. We would like to initiate a small party following the Vespers. If you would like to contribute something in the way of dessert or drink, please let us know here and we'll expect your contribution in addition to what we are able to provide. Remember, the more the merrier!
