At the center of the Church is Jesus Christ, the “most handsome of the sons of men” and the “icon of God the Father.” It is his gracious presence that makes the Church’s Liturgy beautiful. Inspired by this perfect beauty of Christ, the Church throughout the ages has created beautiful works of art for use in the Liturgy as well as to foster the arts in the surrounding culture. The music program at the Cathedral of St. John Berchmans joyfully inherits this tradition. The choirs of the Cathedral weekly present the artistic treasures of the Church in the context of the Liturgy. The Concert Series seeks to carry this beauty out into the community. All of this is presented free of charge so that all people may be exposed to the beauty of the arts and by it be led to the perfect beauty of Christ.
