On May 22, St. Gregory's Hall hosted a Solemn Choral Evensong for Rogation Sunday at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church in Chicago, celebrated according to Divine Worship: Daily Office, the Ordinariate form of the Liturgy of the Hours.
Rev. Richard Kramer (Moderator of the Curia for the Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter) officiated. Noted liturgical musician and composer Kevin Allen directed the music.
When praying for Dorothy Day to be officially recognized as a saint in the Catholic Church, an immediate objection comes from Dorothy herself.
“What I remember her most saying is ‘Don’t make me a saint!’” said Jim Eder, temporary director of the Soup Kitchen at St. Thomas of Canterbury church, speaking of his acquaintance with the woman who co-founded the Catholic Worker movement in the U.S. “So here we are.”
“Here” was St. Thomas of Canterbury church following a holy hour of prayer for Dorothy Day’s canonization. This included sung Vespers by the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, Eucharistic adoration, and preaching from Bishop Mark Bartosic.
