Mark your calendars for the 2012 Credo Day of Recollection: March 3rd, 2012. We return this year to the Chapel of St. Anselm at the Oratory of Ss. Gregory and Augustine in Creve Coeur, located on the grounds of The Priory at 530 Mason Rd.
The Rev. Brian Harrison O.S. and Msgr. Arthur Calkins will be giving the conferences. Fr. Harrison is Credo’s Spiritual Adviser, and Msg. Calkins is a renowned Mariologist and for many years before his retirement had been an official of the commission Ecclesia Dei. We believe you will be inspired by our Day of Recollection Speakers. Take advantage of this opportunity to help make this coming Lent one of your most efficacious.
