The Art & Environment Mission provides the St. Veronica Parish Community with art and environmental decorations including flowers, plants, and backdrops for the church that radiate warmth and beauty during the different liturgical seasons of the year.
By working closely with the Worship Commission, the Art and Environment Ministry carefully plans and places appropriate decorations designed to heighten the awareness of the parish community through meaningful visual designs that hopefully create lasting impressions of the rich and abundant graces unique to each of the liturgical seasons. Any member of the St. Veronica Parish Community may volunteer to assist with decorating by contacting the Parish Office.
"The church building should be beautiful. The external and internal structure of the church building should be expressive of the dignified beauty of God's holy people who gather there and of the sacred rites they celebrate. Liturgical art and architecture reflect and announce the presence of the God who calls the community to worship and invite believers to raise their minds and hearts to the One who is the source of all beauty and truth. Art or architecture that draws more attention to its own shape, form, texture, or color than to the sacred realities it seeks to disclose is unworthy of the church building."
