The Catholic Church has been and continues to be an advocate for the fine arts. Throughout its history, the Church has preserved and promoted art and music. In the document on the Sacred Liturgy, the first of the Second Vatican Council, the statement appears, “The fine arts are rightly classed among the noblest activities of man’s genius; this is especially true of religious art and of its highest manifestation, sacred art. Of their nature the arts are directed toward expressing in some way the infinite beauty of God in works made by human hands.” (122)
The music and arts program at St. Patrick’s School has two music programs throughout the year. The Christmas program will be on December 20th @ 7pm this year and the Spring program will be on March 30th @ 7:00pm. Both of these programs are a great way to see how much joy singing children can bring to our lives. Mrs. Cassiday, the music teacher, does a wonderful job at preparing the children for these programs and they are definitely something that you don’t want to miss.
