Calling all artists! ~ Open to all!
You don’t need to be “talented,” just willing to let your creative juices flow!
As we approach, the Lenten season we are asking all parishioners to think about the question:

Who is God to you?   ~   What is your vision of God?

We are looking for paintings, poetry and drawings that can be hung downstairs in the St. Thomas Moore Hall during the last two weeks of Lent depicting your vision of God.
Entry forms are available to download soon.  Questions?  Call Mary at 860-295-9362, or email:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
