Music & Art
The liturgical themes of this year's Congress have been woven into Sacred Space. Take a reflective walk will to the well, inviting us to join the Samaritan Woman asking Jesus to quench our "Thirst for Justice." On Congress Sunday, March 24, we join the United Nations International Day for the Right to the Truth Concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims. This annual observance pays tribute to the memory of Msgr. Óscar Romero, who was murdered on March 24, 1980. Msgr. Romero was actively engaged in denouncing violations of the human rights of the most vulnerable individuals in El Salvador.
This March 24 will be the first time the Catholic Church celebrates the feast of St. Oscar Romero, Bishop and Martyr, canonized by Pope Francis on October 14, 2018. And so, we dedicate this Sacred Space to Msgr. Romero, a prophet Thirsting for Justice.
Music & Art
Enjoy the gift of music as it ignites the spirit. Journey through our Sacred Space and reflect on the image of art both illuminating and inspiring.
During the exposition of the Holy Eucharist in our Chapel, embrace the time to reflect and reconnect in a quiet meditation ... sit in God's presence to help nourish our "Thirst for Justice."
Located in North 153-156

This walking meditation dates back to medieval times when pilgrims used the labyrinth as a symbolic journey to Jerusalem. Journey toward the center and stand in the spot of "Illumination."
