This year’s Art of the Beautiful series opens on Saturday, October 11th at the Catholic Center at NYU. Rev. John Saward (Oxford University) will discuss The Poverty of the Church and the Beauty of the Liturgy.
The lecture will ask: “Is there a place for liturgical beauty in what Pope Francis has called ‘the Church that is poor and for the poor’?”
Following the lecture and Q&A, there will be a reception and sung Compline, the Church’s nighttime prayer from the Divine Office. The event is free. Seating is limited. Please arrive by 7.15pm to ensure a seat.
The series is co-sponsored by the Catholic Artists Society and the Thomistic Institute.
