Sacred Art Workshop: a visual way to pray

Jesse Tree
Adapted from an Illuminated Manuscript
The Scherenberg Psalter, circa 1260
The Jesse Tree is a visual representation of Jesus' genealogy.
At the bottom,Jesse is asleep and the branch grows upwards from his side.
First are the Prophets, Isaiah and Jeremiah, then at the top are the Kings:
Solomon and David, the son of Jesse.At the center is Jesus,  held by Mary.
The idea of hosting a Sacred Art Workshop at my Parish Church is simply an invitation to all visual artists or those interested in the visual arts. Our Parish is very welcoming to those who love to sing, what about deepening your prayer life through color and line? We have a rich tradition in the Visual Arts and our first inspiration will be from The Illuminated Manuscript. If the day or time is not working for you, email me at to discuss.  Friday, November 27 from 3;30-5pm in Rm 006 at St. Basil's Catholic Parish at the University of St. Michael's College, Toronto.
