Service of the Longest Night set for December 16

Abbey Caskets, a work of Saint Meinrad Archabbey, will host a Service of the Longest Night on Saturday, December 16, 2023, at 6 p.m. Central Time in the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Guest House Chapel in St. Meinrad, IN. Many people find the holidays a challenging time. Instead of celebrating, they are struggling with grief. They miss loved ones and find that the usual traditions and bright lights serve only to heighten their struggle. Fr. Adrian Burke, OSB, will lead the service with prayer and Scripture that acknowledge those who mourn and struggle with loss during the Christmas season. The service will be recorded and posted on the Abbey Caskets website for those unable to attend in person. Everyone is welcome. Light refreshments will follow. RSVP requested, but not required, for planning. Reply to [email protected] or call 800-987-7380 for further information. Parking is available in the Guest House parking lot.


Are you an alum of “Music at Maple Mount”?

The first Greater Owensboro Music Camp — which most everyone eventually called Music at Maple Mount — began in 1975. In June 2024, we will celebrate the 50th year since that first camp by inviting everyone who participated to a reunion weekend. This reunion is part of the celebration year recognizing 150 years since the Ursuline Sisters arrived in what is now known as Maple Mount. The reunion will occur the second weekend of June, but the exact dates are awaiting the input of our camp alumni. Would you prefer a welcome back reception on Friday, June 7, activities on June 8 and a final concert on Sunday afternoon, June 9? Or would you prefer starting on Thursday, June 6, and having the final concert on Saturday night, June 8? The sooner you let us know, the sooner we will set those dates. Please take a few moments to complete the questionnaire and then join us in June 2024 for more Music at Maple Mount! You can find the survey near the bottom of this web page: https://ursulinesmsj.org/music-at-maple-mount-reunion/ The questionnaire is also our way of catching up with where life has taken you since you were a Music Camper.
