Join us for the Annual Shem Center for Interfaith Spirituality concert last spring really made the day. Our anthem, “Laudare, Benedicere, Praedicare” was the highlight of the occasion with Dominicans joining the musicians in leading the audience in its singing. This year’s concert is titled, “Restoring Civility, a Concert of Classical Music,” and will take place on Sunday March 26th at 3:00 pm at St. Giles parish Center in Oak Park, Illinois. The exquisite photographs of Sister Pat Farrell, OP will be projected during part of the concert. Those of you who live within driving distance of Oak Park are cordially invited to join us. Our musicians are first rate and will surely inspire and delight us with their performances.
