NYC: 1 March Catholic Artists Society @ St. Vincent de Paul Church, Fr. Murray speaking

Hey New Yorkers, and anyone nearby, mark your calendar. The Catholic Artists Society will have an evening of recollection for artists and media professionals on Thursday, March 1st at 7pm at the Church of St. Vincent de Paul, 123 W. 23rd Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues) in New York City.

Father Gerald Murray, the parish’s pastor and outstanding priest and good friend of many years, will offer a meditation on themes related to the work and spiritual life of the artist. There will be opportunity for confession and silent adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, followed by Solemn Benediction and a reception afterwards.

An invitation with more details will follow soon.

Of special interest to artists – The Church of St. Vincent de Paul is an architectural gem, with a 19th century interior designed in the classical style by Henry Englebert, and a facade added by Anthony Depace in 1939. The interior boasts many beautiful works of art, including 10 Tiffany stained-glass windows. The church has a long connection with the city’s Francophone community, and was the venue for the 1952 marriage of Edith Piaf to Jacques Pills, in which Marlene Dietrich acted as matron of honor.

    As if Edith Piaf wasn’t magnificent enough in French…

  2. Might I also add that Fr. Murray gives mini-reflections/sermons on each day’s readings on Itunes under a podcast titled “CNA Homily of the Day”. The majority of the time he does it, and has a Fr. Abram substitute when on other duties. Very worthwhile when you don’t go to Mass daily. At least one can hear the parts and reflect on the Liturgy of the Word when done in combo with “Daily Readings from the New American Bible”
