Beauty Series

Behold the Beauty of the Lord

“He is beautiful in heaven, beautiful on earth; beautiful in the womb, beautiful in his parents’ arms, beautiful in his miracles, beautiful in inviting to life, beautiful in not worrying about death, beautiful in giving his life and beautiful in the tomb, beautiful in heaven.  Listen to the song with understanding, and let not the weakness of the flesh distract your eyes from the splendor of his beauty” (St. Augustine).

What is Beauty? How do we define it, what does it mean, and where can we notice it? In the upcoming months, we will explore Beauty in many ways, seeking to uncover its real meaning. Below, you’ll find a listing of topics, events, and ways in which we can discover Beauty together in community. We pray you’ll join us!
