Join us for an edifying evening of prayer, dinner, and conversation with the Benedictine monks at the Monastery of the Holy Cross on the south side of Chicago. We will pray the Divine Office (Vespers and Compline), have dinner, and discuss a spiritual topic with prior of the monastery and University of Chicago alum Fr. Peter Funk, OSB. Following monastic tradition of oral reading during meals, selections of a text will be read during dinner and discussion will follow.
More information about the monastery can be found here.
