Elements of Sacred Places: Churches, Shrines, Sanctuaries and Homes

October 2 @ 9:15 am - 6:30 pm


Join the St Patrick community in St Charles IL for a talk about the sacredness of places both familiar and sublime, ordinary and extraordinary. Specific reference will be made to St Patrick’s downtown church and its history, as we address and illustrate more universal elements of ecclesial architecture, the action of prayer, the effect of beauty in our world, and our place within it.  

Morning Gathering from 9:00 a.m. until 10:15 a.m.

Evening Gathering from 7:00 p.m. until 8:15 p.m.

All are welcome!

Our featured speaker will be Nell Andrzejewski, the founder and Director of Catholic Church Tours. Nell has taught, traveled, studied or worked in ten different countries and led explorations of the Eternal City and other notable destinations. She has been a guest on the radio shows, Light of the East with Fr Thomas Loya, the Patrick McCormic Show, the Dan Cheely Show and with Relevant Radio’s Miracle Hunter. She is gifted with opening the doors to what is sacred by ordinary means and through extraordinary treasures that are often right under our noses.

This event is free.

Meet at: St Patrick’s “Downtown Church”, 40 Cedar Road, St Charles IL, lower level.
