The Stroble Center for Liturgy at Saint Louis University welcomed more than 100 people for a concert featuring Fr. Cyprian Consiglio in the Busch Student Center Friday, March 18.
The concert, "Compassionate and Wise," included world music from a variety of spiritual traditions.
Saturday morning, Fr. Cyprian led a retreat titled "Dying and Rising: Preparing for Easter" which included morning prayer and the celebration of the Eucharist. Participants enjoyed his fresh perspective that both followers of Western and Eastern spiritual traditions can learn from each other to enhance their prayer life.
Fr. Cyprian is an internationally known performer, recording artist and composer. He has written several collections of music for Catholic liturgy as well as music for personal prayer and meditation.
The Stroble Center for Liturgy at Saint Louis University enlivens, enriches and deepens the celebration of the Eucharist by enabling Catholics to participate more fully in the Mass, by advancing the composition of liturgical music, and by teaching students about the riches of Catholic liturgy.
