Hanging Out With the Pink Sisters

Our quest to complete St. Louis Magazine's "101 Things Every St. Louisan Must Do" continues. This time we headed to the north side to "listen to the Pink Sisters at Mount Grace Chapel".

Sister Act this place was not. Yes there was singing, but it was even more somber than the church norm. There was a bit of theater exhibited when a giant red curtain seemingly drew itself back to reveal a giant golden Eucharist holder cross thing.

So the full name of the place is Mount Grace Chapel of Perpetual Adoration. I didn't realize until afterwards that at least one of the nuns is in the chapel praying to the Eucharist 24 hours a day.

A large fence separated the pinkies from the rest. Was the fence to keep them in or us out? It's a mystery.
