Scenes from Old St. Patrick Oratory

We haven't recently put up any of the treasure trove of beautiful photographs of the Oratory Consecration and Rededication last October. We'll start posting more of these in the coming weeks and months. This photo is of incensing of the congregation. The liturgy invites the celebrant/deacon/server to show reverence to the people and bless us with a cloud of incense in our direction. To accept the honor, we stand and bow.

Our thanks to a reader who identified this young cleric as Evan Harkins, a seminarian of the Kansas City-St. Joseph diocese.
