Successful Benefit Recital for the Shrine
Posted in Events on October 3, 2008

The Shrine of Christ the King in Chicago welcomed a full crowd of people, including the Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Chicago and the Consul General of Germany in Chicago, who had come from far and wide as well as from the local surrounding area to attend the Benefit Recital held in honor of His Highness, Paul Duke of Oldenburg, Germany, a long time friend of our Institute, on Saturday, September 27.

After His Highness spoke about his conversion to the Catholic Faith, there followed a delightful program of sacred baroque music and of traditional spirituals sung by the widely-acclaimed tenor, Mr. Trevor Mitchell. The friendly warmth and lively conversation at the reception which followed testified to the success of this fundraising event, which is owed in large part to the generosity of our benefactors and of the volunteers who gave their time and effort.
