“The Church needs artists because without art we cannot reach the world. The simple fact is that the imagination ‘gets you,’ even when your reason is completely against the idea of God… There is a sort of schizophrenia that occurs if you are listening to Bach and you hear the glory of God... You are committed to believing nothing means anything and yet the music comes in and takes you over with your imagination. When you listen to great music, you can’t believe life is meaningless. Your heart knows what your mind is denying.”
What We Do and Why:Saint Pat’s is full of artists - musicians, illustrators, painters, graphic designers, photographers, filmmakers, dancers, playwrights, even animatronic designers! Every Saturday morning Rick & Kim Destree host Saturday Art Club at John Galt Coffee, and for almost a decade Blayne Chastain has hosted a traditional Irish music session at Patrick’s Irish Pub. Many of our musicians play in the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra (GPO) or sing in the Greeley Chorale, and our building offers a gorgeous setting for local concerts.
- How to Help:
- Get out and experience local shows! Buy their art, listen to their music!
- Artists, let us know of anything you are involved with!
- Give to our new “St. Pat’s Art Fund” to directly support local artists.
