The University of St. Thomas will continue a centuries-old tradition of the Catholic Church with a Solemn Vespers service at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2, in the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas. Father Dennis Dease, president of St. Thomas, will preside.

Vespers is an ecumenical service of liturgy and music, and an opportunity to remember the dead and to celebrate the communion of saints. The service will include psalms, petitions and music by the university’s Women’s Choir.

The public is welcome. The chapel is located on Cleveland Avenue near Laurel Avenue, on the university’s St. Paul campus.
