Video of 1964 Mass at the Benedictine Monastery in Saint Louis
This hour-long video, produced by KMOX-TV and dating from 1964, shows the Benedictine monastery, located in Saint Louis County, Missouri. The bulk of the video shows a Solemn High Mass of the Holy Spirit, celebrated in the monastery’s distinctive circular church. Included are brief histories of Saint Louis, of the Benedictine Order, and of the monastery along with its church building and school. The Mass itself includes a running commentary on the rites by a Benedictine.
