Tonight: Solemn High Requiem Mass for Cardinal George at St. John Cantius

If you are in the Chicago area, take note:

A Solemn High Requiem Mass will be celebrated for the repose of the soul of Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I. at St. John Cantius Church (825 N. Carpenter St., Chicago, 60642). Music for this Mass will be sung by the St. Cecilia Choir.

    Missa pro Defunctis, Giovanni Francesco Anerio
    Ave Verum, William Byrd
    De Profundis, Johann Joseph Fux
    Miserere, Orlando di Lassus
All visitors and friends from Chicago and beyond are invited to attend.

Also, on their website is this:

From the beginning, it was Cardinal George who envisioned that a small community of men founded at a run-down Chicago church would become a flourishing order dedicated to the “Restoration of the Sacred.”
Read the statement from Rev. C. Frank Phillips upon the death of Cardinal George: “We are a living legacy of this shepherd of souls.”
