Greetings from St. Louis

Greetings all.

I arrived in St. Louis late yesterday. The Catholic healthcare system, SSM Healthcare, for whom I am working these few days, put together a little volunteer choir and we just rehearsed for the first time, and they are wonderful.

Here are some photos I took after I arrived yesterday. I love "The Arch."

More to come. Please remember to read yesterday's post, and take the survey!

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.

Now, Jerry, when my wife and I went to the first St. Louis NPM, we took the little cart tour through and up/down the arch. You MUST do this!
And yes, I did go to NPM's back in the day.

Charles, I have an innate fear of enclosed spaces. Do you think this is a good idea?

I was born just a few blocks from where you took that picture - St Lukes Hospital downtown ... Don't know if its still there. We lived in Florissant.

The ride up the arch would be a poor choice for the claustrophobic...the room at the top is a bit cramped too!

Nope, Jerry, it's tight in there as Anon sez.
But the view is spectacular.
Being young an much more sarcastic then, I remember thinking and muttering to my beloved wife, "Wow, this would be a heckuva spot to see a nuclear explosion!" She's never forgiven me for that quip.
The Cathedral (Byzantine, new) was incredible!
