Mass for Artists Fills Church of Our Saviour

The event attracted working artists from all disciplines – architecture, music, theatre, film, opera, dance, the visual arts and related media. Prominent artists came from all over the New York archdiocese, and from as far away as Rochester, Boston, Philadelphia and London, England. 

The Catholic Artists Society would like to thank Fr. George Rutler, Pastor of the Church of Our Saviour, Fr. Joseph Koterski, and Fr. Michael Barone, as well as Mark Froeba, Eddy Torribio, Samuel Howard, Mallory Danaher and all those who generously provided material and spiritual support. Stay tuned for future events sponsored by the Catholic Artists Society!

Tibi laus, tibi gloria, tibi gratiarum actio in saecula sempiterna, O beata Trinitas.
Caritas Pater est, gratia Filius, communicatio Spiritus Sanctus, O beata Trinitas.
Verax est Pater, veritas Filius, veritas Spiritus Sanctus, O beata Trinitas.
Pater et Filius, et Spiritus Sanctus una substantia est, O beata Trinitas.
Et benedictum nomen gloriae tuae sanctum: et laudabile et super exaltatum in saecula. 

Praise to you, glory to you, thanksgiving to you forever and ever, O blessed Trinity.
The Father is charity, the Son grace, the Holy Spirit imparting goodness: O blessed Trinity.

Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one substance, O blessed Trinity.
And blessed is the Holy Name of your glory, praiseworthy and exalted above all forever.
