During this season of Advent, we will be offering Sung Vespers at St. Monica Church in Chippewa and at St. Blaise Church in Midland.  An optional preparation class will available (except on the O Antiphon days) to introduce participants to the chant melodies and to help engage in a deeper reflection on the psalms that we will be singing.  Practice and support material will also be posted on this site for those who would like to learn more about the prayers and the chant.
