Looking at Prayer with a Thomistic Lens: Beauty

Thomas Aquinas has made significant contributions to Christian theological understanding in the areas of “natural reason” and “speculative theology.” This session will consider Beauty (one of three “transcendental properties of being”) as a means to ground one’s personal prayer with meditation on the “big picture” as it might inspire acts of charity and justice toward one’s goal of making progress in the Christian universal call to holiness. This session is part 3 of a 3-part series.

Stained Glass Restoration at Calvary

This presentation by John Kelly, of Kelly Art Glass in Pittsburgh, will illustrate the process of restoring Calvary’s four Regional History Series lancets, created by Charles Connick and located in the narthex façade of the church. Kelly Art Glass restored and reinstalled these historically and artistically significant windows, which were in serious need of repair, in the fall and winter of 2015. This forum will touch on the historic value of these windows, the artistry of their creation and repair, and an appraisal of the need to continue with a systematic program for restoring the remaining windows.

NOTE: Christian Education programs at Calvary are designed to reflect the interests and concerns of the parish. From time to time, changes may be made in response to emerging topics or needs. Watch the bulletin and Agape for current information.
