We had over 80 participants at Wednesday's opening GIFT session: Beauty in Creation. Thank you to all who made it a part of their evening, and to those who ensured its success. Beginning our discourse on beauty and how it is related to the good and the true, excerpts from Pope St. John Paul II's "Letter to Artists" (1999) was shared. Here is the video clip highlighting portions of it, which we were unable to share that night. Talk to those who went and consider making sessions of GIFT part of your faith formation in the year ahead. On display in the narthex or in the images below is the fruit of our hands in Creation, illustrating the account from Genesis.
