If you agree with our mission and vision, please sign up and join us in Advancing the Culture of Life through Prayer and Art. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and under the patronage of Our Lady of Lourdes, you can:
• Recite the Stabat Mater Prayer for Artists every day.
• Offer Masses, Rosaries, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, the SMPA Beauty Chaplet, or simply the name of Jesus, for artists.
• Facilitate connections among artists and arts supporters by every means possible.
• We seek to strengthen the bond between the world of art and the world of faith, between artists and arts supporters, by developing a worldwide online community of Catholic clergy and laymen committed to praying for artists.
• We accept prayer requests and will facilitate connections among artists and between artists and arts supporters, by personal contact, phone, and e-mail correspondence, or through this website.
• We encourage parish members to form small prayer/study groups that explore the 2,000-year artistic heritage of the Roman Catholic Church, emphasizing the essential themes of Christianity as evidenced through the arts.
• We envision a chapel in East Texas and will develop work and retreat spaces as we are able. A rural educational retreat would give sacred artists a place to work and learn while providing spiritual renewal.
