Parish to celebrate feast day of St. MeinradJanuary 9, 2020
ST. MEINRAD — St. Meinrad Parish will celebrate the feast day of its patron, St. Meinrad, on Sunday, Jan. 19. Mass will be celebrated at 8:30 a.m. CT, followed by a parish social and complimentary breakfast in the St. Meinrad Community Center.
Fr. Anthony Vinson, OSB, pastor, will give the feast-day homily on the life of St. Meinrad, a hermit and martyr, and the gift of radical hospitality.
The parish was founded on Jan. 21, 1861, the feast of St. Meinrad, a monk known for his extraordinary charity and hospitality in what is now called Einsiedeln, Switzerland. Jan. 21, 1861, also was the 1,000th anniversary of the death of the martyr Meinrad.
Eight days after the parish founding, a new German Catholic settlement was established as the town of St. Meinrad.
The feast day celebration will include a media display of local, regional and international service and outreach initiatives by Historic St. Boniface Catholic Church and St. Meinrad Catholic Church in Spencer County, and activities and door prizes sponsored by the parish Heritage, Fundraising and Marketing Commission.
The public is welcome. Area guests of six or more are asked to make reservations by Wednesday, Jan. 15.
To make reservations or for more information, call the parish office at 812-357-5533 or visit www.smcatholic.church/contact-us.
