Prayer for the Year of Consecrated Life
O God, throughout the ages you have called women and men to pursue lives of perfect charity through the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience. During this Year of Consecrated Life, we give you thanks for these courageous witnesses of Faith and models of inspiration. Their pursuit of holy lives teaches us to make a more perfect offering of ourselves to you. Continue to enrich your Church by calling forth sons and daughters who, having found the pearl of great price, treasure the Kingdom of Heaven above all things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Sacred art is art created solely for the Eucharist, and its presence in the liturgy leads us from seeing and hearing…to contemplation…to worship. Sacred art makes visible to our senses the invisible beauty of God’s love for the world through color, light, line and form.
The sacred paintings, mosaics, stained glass and sculptures—in addition to the vestments, vessels and liturgical furnishings—that have been so thoughtfully and prayerfully chosen for our worship space are intended to enrich our masses and celebrations of sacraments—to take us deeper into communion with God.
The faith community of St. Vincent de Paul has been richly blessed by many sacrificial donations from parishioners that have allowed us to install the gorgeous pieces that already adorn our sanctuary. Our genuine and heartfelt thanks go to each donor. We recognize these as gifts of love for our Lord and humbly accept them with gratitude.
We look forward to one day having all the beautiful sacred art pieces in place in our church to enrich our masses and celebrations of sacraments. Please take some time to look through the following lists of still-available liturgical art:
