FAREWELL FROM WALLY FELD
I have been associated with St. Francis de Sales
since I was baptized in the church and
schooled in grades one through twelve here
and married in this church. Over the years I
continued to be more remotely involved, but
remained a regular visitor in conjunction with
Benevolent Society activities. That all changed
when the Institute of Christ the King came to
the church and campus. I, along with three
other former parishioners, volunteered to help
the Rector (then Father Lenhardt) become acquainted with the buildings and their need for
basic repair work, updating and usability.
Subsequently it turned into accepting the invitation, in 2006, to become General Manager on
a regular part time basis, luring me out of my
retirement. That has lasted eight and a half
years and, during that time, I have seen a great
revival of this facility. Although some of the
work has been below ground or behind walls,
the grounds have been improved and every
building has seen significant repair and renovation. I am proud of the role I have played in
this much needed positive change for this campus, which is an anchor to the Fox Park neighborhood and the near South Side. The highlight of the renewal of St. Francis de Sales
came this past August when the church was
used for priestly ordinations for the first time
in its history and included temporary air conditioning of the building.
I am now ready to return to the fully retired
life and will be leaving my staff position in the
first week of the calendar year. I will continue
to be an observer of the renaissance of this
place and again be a regular visitor, advocate
and as-needed volunteer. I would like to thank
Canon Wiener, all the Canons, Oblates, candidates, staff, volunteers and contractors that
have helped with the improvements that have
been accomplished since July 2005.
FAREWELL FOR WALLY FELD
The General Manager at the Oratory, Mr.
Walter Feld, will retire from his position at the
beginning of January 2015. In the name of all
superiors of the Institute and in the name of the
entire community of canons, oblate, candidates
and faithful at St. Francis de Sales Oratory we
express our heartfelt gratitude to Wally Feld for
his faithful services to St. Francis de Sales
Oratory.
There will be a reception on January 4 after the
10:00AM Mass on the occasion of the farewell of
Wally and the visit of the newly ordained Canon
Benjamin Coggeshall.
Please read the words of Mr. Feld which he
addresses to all of us and which we present in a
separate column.

STAINED GLASS WINDOW
REPAIR UPDATE
Now that the first stained glass window high
above the sanctuary has been repaired and updated for the future, the people from Emil Frei Associates have gotten approval from the City Cultural
Resources Office to use this method for the remainder of the window repair. Stephen and David
Frei have assessed the windows around the church
building and recommend the next phase of work
to be the three windows that are adjacent to the
repaired one above the south side of the sanctuary.
These were selected because of the easier access
and the amount of terra cotta repair needed, and
the Frei’s are in the process of formulating a repair scheme and producing a cost estimate.
In addition, one of the lower vent type windows
(St Mary Magdalen) near the Infant of Prague altar has shown damage that is in immediate need of
repair. A generous donor who alerted us about this
damage has offered to fund this repair. The work,
because it is on the lower level and can be removed and taken to the Frei studio, can begin immediately before any further damage can cause a
failure to this window.

TO ALL OUR GUESTS…
Canon Wiener and the faithful of St. Francis de Sales Oratory welcome you, and hope that your time in the
“Cathedral of South St. Louis” may be an opportunity to share in the tradition of the Roman Catholic Faith.
Please enjoy the beauty of this building dedicated to St. Francis de Sales, co-patron of the
INSTITUTE OF CHRIST THE KING SOVEREIGN PRIEST.
According to liturgical tradition, and the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, Holy Communion is received
kneeling and on the tongue. All visitors who are not of the Catholic faith are welcome to join us in prayer, but
are requested not to receive Holy Communion. Because the reception of Holy Communion is the sign of Divine
and Ecclesial unity, only practicing Catholics who are free of mortal sin, and in full communion with the
Catholic Church should present themselves for Holy Communion.
We pray for the full visible unity among all Christians.
To receive more information about the Oratory or if you desire to become a member of the Catholic Church,
contact the rectory. St. Francis de Sales Oratory is an Oratory of the INSTITUTE OF CHRIST THE KING
SOVEREIGN PRIEST in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
All contributions to the Oratory are sincerely appreciated and are tax deductible.
