Arts & Faith: Advent

Virtual Event: 4 Wednesday evenings, Dec. 1, 8, 15 and 22 at 7pm, on Zoom.

Prepare for Christmas and deepen your experience of the Advent season this year with Arts & Faith: Advent. Each Wednesday evening we’ll watch a video commentary produced by Loyola Press about a work of art inspired by the Sunday Scriptures. We’ll use these videos to take a new look at this season of hope and preparation through the lens of sacred art.

Each video features the commentary of Daniella Zsupan-Jerome, assistant professor of liturgy, catechesis, and evangelization at Loyola University New Orleans. She holds a bachelor’s degree in theology from the University of Notre Dame, a master’s degree in liturgy from St. John’s University in Collegeville, a master’s degree in religion and the arts from Yale Divinity School, and a Ph.D. in theology and education from Boston College. Her unique background in faith and art brings to life a new way of celebrating Advent and understanding the season on a more personal level.

This series is sponsored by the Creating Space Collective, offered by the Canaan Congregational Church to cultivate an openness to the sacred, and encourage people to communicate with one another through the medium of artistic expression. All are welcome. Registration is required.
