You’re Invited: Enter the National Eucharistic Art Competition

Art and faith have always shared a profound connection. For the viewer, sacred art offers a unique way to explore the beauty and truth of our faith expressed in a visual way. This is so powerful that many Catholics engage in a prayer method called visio divina as a part of their regular practice. For the artist, this expression of creativity can be both an act of worship and a way to mirror the Creator in whose image we were made.

Today, in partnership with St. Edmund’s Sacred Art Institute, we would like to announce an exciting opportunity for artists across the nation: the National Eucharistic Art Competition. Creative Catholics from all over the country are invited to share their talents in exploration and celebration of the Eucharistic mystery, contributing to a vibrant tapestry of Eucharistic art.

Selected works will be showcased at the 10th National Eucharistic Congress, exhibited in a premiere show at the Museum of Blessed Michael McGivney Center in Connecticut, and displayed at other locations as a part of the Eucharistic Sacred Art Exhibit.
