"You never know who you will see at St. Raymond's"
The Cedars is a wonderful lunch venue to catch up with family, meet up with friends, or have a casual business lunch.
They could be doing a number of other things on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday but for the core group of kitchen volunteers at St. Raymond's service to their Church comes first.
If you have not experienced lunch at St. Raymond's on a Wednesday; then make it a point to get there. Large groups can be accommodated and every individual who walks through the doors of the Cedars is treated with friendship and hospitality. While you are there you are likely to see people you know as this luncheon has been a staple of St. Louis for more than twenty-five years and is still going strong.
The parish of St. Raymond's is most grateful to all of the volunteers who make this weekly luncheon possible. The prep work begins Monday mornings by making cabbage rolls. Tuesday mornings is when our specialty Kibbi Aras (footballs) are made and then in the evening the Holy Rollers meet to roll grape leaves. On Wednesdays, before lunch is served, there are many final foods being prepared such as meat pies and spinach pies. Our wonderful volunteers work hard to provide the best possible experience; sharing our Lebanese culture and traditions.
The parish is most grateful to these "jewels" for their time, their talent, and their commitment. The parish is also most grateful to its patrons over the years. See you at St. Raymond's on Wednesdays between 11:00 . and 2:00 . Tell all of your friends!
We are very proud of the quality and the authenticity of our Lebanese cuisine. Our kitchen workers consist of many volunteers who have a lot of passion and thoroughly enjoy making some of the best food in Saint Louis. We bring our ministry and love of Jesus and our Church into our food.
The price paid for this achievement was considerable. The masonry of Chartres is not noted for its finish. The crocket capitals are crude, and it is charitable to assume that they were not expected to be visible in the darkened interior. The structure, as befits a daring experiment, erred on the side of caution. The arcades carry much unnecessary weight, and the building is over-buttressed, especially along the nave. Later buildings refined these qualities. Although French cathedrals were never the same after Chartres, none of them has its robust, strictly functional style of architecture.
