Recordings from All Hallow’s Eve
If you were not able to make it to Vespers on All Hallows Eve, or if you did attend and would like to revisit it, you can see photos and listen to recordings of the event here. You will find Father Bruno Shah’s inspiring homily, the beautiful chant and polyphony, and of course Fr. Uwe Michael Lang’s insightful lecture on “Art, Beauty and the Sacred.”

Inspired by Pope Benedict XVI’s call to artists to be “custodians of Beauty” and “heralds and witnesses of Hope to humanity”, the Catholic Artists Society is an association of arts, entertainment and media professionals dedicated to working for the greater glory of God and the common good. In keeping with the aims of the New Evangelization, the Society seeks to reach out to all artists, as well as to patrons and audiences, to promote a public discourse on the meaning of Beauty, and to cultivate a greater understanding of Christianity’s contribution to the shaping of our cultural heritage and civilization.
