Hoop Scoop: A St. Louis Landmark

This week's hoop scoop brings a St. Louis Gothic-revival Landmark to our workshop frames in anticipation for St. Francis de Sales' Summer at the Oratory on August 19th.

It's worth a trip to St. Louis, Missouri to see for yourself - beautiful stained glass windows by the famous Emil Frei, a High Altar comprised of over 50 feet of exquisite beauty, and a liturgy so rich in the traditions of the Church as to further sanction St. Louis' link to the Eternal City by the name, "Rome of the West".

This virtual tour should tempt the eye, if the description above hasn't already!

Visit the Oratory for 10am Mass on August 19, 2012 and follow the crowds afterward to take part in the annual Summer at the Oratory - an afternoon filled with hometown BBQ, games, prizes, silent auction, and more!

When? August 19, 2012, 11am-7pm
Where? 2653 Ohio Ave, St. Louis, Missouri

And keep an eye out for this design, embroidered on... can you guess?


  1. Hmmm.... Table cloth for one of the tables at the event?

  2. Elizabeth sent me and I am so glad she did. I just might have to drive 5 hours for Mass on the 19th. The Oratory is beautiful. Love your embroidery, especially the St. Patrick pillow cases.

    1. Oh, I hope you do! Not only is it a spiritually enriching Mass, it's a fabulously fun day for the whole family. Well worth a weekend excursion to St. Louis - Rome of the West. :-)
