“Faith and Preservation: The Rebirth of St. Francis de Sales” raises the Preservation Week curtain on the evening of Friday, May 11th. After a brief organ recital and a special welcome by Archbishop Raymond L. Burke visitors will learn about needed repairs to and renovation of the fine Gothic Revival church (the “Cathedral” of the South Side) and its parish buildings pictured above. The formal program (starting promptly at 5:30 p.m. in the sanctuary located at Gravois and Ohio) will be followed by tours of the parish buildings and a reception featuring German wine in the church basement. Sponsored by DeSales Community Housing Corporation.
