“Beauty is a key to the mystery and a call to transcendence. It is an invitation to savor life and to dream of the future. That is why the beauty of created things can never fully satisfy. It stirs that hidden nostalgia for God which a lover of beauty like Saint Augustine could express in incomparable terms: ‘Late have I loved you, beauty so old and so new: late have I loved you!' ”
Saint John Paul II
Letter to Artists, #16
WORSHIP: The Intimate Encounter with Christ

Liturgical Arts & Environment

The beauty of our church artwork and environs reflects our recognition of the wonder of the Lord’s presence in our midst. We seek to create a reverent and prayerful environment in the our church throughout the year.

Artists, architects, florists, designers and craftsmen are encouraged to offer their gifts so our parish environment and grounds will fully reflect the glory of God.

For more information about this ministry, contact the Parish Office, 301-474-4322

Altar Flowers

The gift of flowers for the Sanctuary of the church is a beautiful way to celebrate a birthday, marriage or anniversary or to honor a deceased family member or friend.

If you would like to donate flowers for the Altar, please pick up a donation envelope from the back of the Church or contact the Parish Office, 301-474-4322.

You are my Creator, Eternal Trinity, and I am your creature. You have made me a new creation in the blood of your Son, and I know that you are moved with love at the beauty of your creation. I know that you are beauty and wisdom itself. The food of angels, you gave yourself to us in the fire of your love, O Triune God! Amen.
