Vespers at Lourdes (Minneapolis)

A substantial encounter with the Living God. The evening begins with chanted evening prayer, also know as Vespers. This is an ancient tradition of the Church in which the Psalms of David are recited before the Blessed Sacrament. Presentations explore the inherent tension of living a vibrant, excellent, and full Catholic life as a lay professional, leaving listeners better prepared to face the challenges young Catholics face in today’s world. Following Vespers and some brief time for prayer, the evening continues with a free will offering bar with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The Vespers at Lourdes planning committee kindly requests that all attendees be 21 years of age or older. Expected dress is business casual. See more.
