The Sacred Arts - Art, Architecture and Music
The Foundation for Sacred Arts is a Catholic nonprofit organization founded to stimulate a vibrant renewal in the patronage and production of Christian sacred arts (art, architecture, and music); and to advance the pursuit of excellence in conformity with truth, goodness, and beauty in these arts; for the glory of God, the life of His Church, and the transformation of culture.
A new way forward
by Mark Nowakowski
Even in an age of deep social and economic uncertainty, the need for true beauty continues to be felt by both individuals and the Church. It is no coincidence that the very same Pope who called for the New Evangelization also gave us his “Letter to Artists,” in which he plainly said: “The Church needs art, and artists need the Church.” His successor would continue the future saint's legacy of meeting with artists and discussing what makes truly great Catholic art.
