Sacred Art

Glorifying God through Sacred Art

 

Please see our special announcement from August 15, 2018 on the next steps with this project.


Background

From the time of Christ, the Catholic Church has used art to instruct its believers about our Faith and to inspire us to glorify God. Sacred art can both illuminate and illustrate our Catholic Faith.  We have an opportunity to do this in our own church by adorning the 'drum' with sacred art. By displaying the lives of the Saints, we can inspire, encourage, and reassure while teaching the goodness, truth, and beauty of God.

Please see the latest update from August 15, 2018 We invite you to be a part of this transformational effort to join our prayers with the Communion of Saints. For more information, please email Director of Development, Harold D. "Sam" Samorian Jr.
