Please join The John Paul II Fellowship and The Saint Cecilia Group as we partner to bring you Painting a Path to Heaven: Art in the Life of Faith, a series of four monthly lectures designed to explore how we are lifted up by beauty and art. How does imagination allow us to perceive beauty? What is the effect of art and culture on our emotional, spiritual, and psychological life? What does it mean to live a life full of creativity and faith? These are just some of the questions we will discuss throughout the series as we come together to foster the growth of human and spiritual values through attention to beauty and art.
We hope you can attend, and after each lecture, enjoy a Dessert and Wine Reception!
