Imagine yourself in a sacred space, hearing music notes swirling around you like a hive of happy buzzing bees. Smelling the waning incense of a morning’s Mass and sweet odor of picturesque flowers at the peak of their elegance. At a party, tasting the robust flavor of an aged cheese and swallowing the delicate drops of a fragile wine. See the passionate musicians creating each song with energy and cadence. Reach out to greet friends, young and older, embracing in the common desire to connect in community.

This is The King’s Concert Series, a new venture at St. Louis King of France Catholic Church. Not just a place to rest your souls, but a place to rejuvenate your mind and spirit.
