On Saturday, January 24, the monks will celebrate Solemn Choral Vespers with Schola Laudis, conducted by Kevin Allen. We are especially pleased that the Most Reverend Bishop Joseph Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Chicago, will preside at this beautiful celebration. The Schola will be contributing the motet Laudate Dominum by Hans Leo Hassler, Dextera Domini by Orlande de Lassus and one of Palestrina’s settings of the Magnificat in Mode VIII. Vespers will begin at 5:15 p.m. We hope that many of you will be able to join us!
As always, we present this beautiful music in its proper liturgical setting. Join us for an evening of reverent beauty at the “acoustically superb and architecturally significant Monastery of the Holy Cross.”

Our new altar has been dedicated!
On Saturday, June 28, His Eminence Francis Cardinal George celebrated the liturgy of the Dedication of an Altar here at the monastery. We are very pleased with the new look of our sanctuary. The icons and altar together are quite stunning. Pictures of the event are available at our Flickr account here.
