Sung Vespers set at Saint Thomas More

NORMAN — Members of all faith communities and denominations are invited to St. Thomas More University Parish, 100 Stinson St., once a month for Sung Vespers.

Vespers is a liturgy of evening prayers during which the Christian faithful look back on the day and give thanks. The liturgy includes hymns and psalms that vary according to the feast or season of the year.

The next Sung Vespers at St. Thomas More will be at 7 p.m. June 6 at Saint Thomas More. Parking will be available in the lot adjacent to the church, as well as the lots north and east of St. Thomas More.

Each month, a different choir and organist will provide sacred music. In June, the Choir of Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church in Norman, under the direction of Dr. Adam Pajan, will sing.

This is the third year that St. Thomas More has provided Sung Vespers, which was initiated by Nolan Reilly, organist and director of music at St. Thomas More.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to shine a light on the vast amount of musical talent in our diocese and to experience liturgy and music in a way that is unfamiliar to many,” Reilly said.

For more information or directions, call St. Thomas More University Parish at 321-0990 or visit stm-ou.org.
