Current Cathedral Art: Souls Shot


Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence ™

The Second Annual Exhibition    

June 25 – July 31, 2019

Beautiful Tamara

  Beautiful Tamara, Portrait of Tamara Johnson by Nathalie Miller

Open for viewing by appointment -- call 215-386-0234.  

This project links fine artists with families or friends of victims of gun violence.  The artists meet with the victims' loved ones to learn about the lives they lived. Our goal is to present diverse works that in some way relay graphically, or through narrative, the essence of the person being portrayed.

Our mission is to bring attention to and memorialize the lives lost and tragically altered due to gun violence.  Portraits have the unique ability to call out the souls and profoundly affect those who see them.  

We hope that this project will continue to bring some joy and peace to the families and friends of victims and, by bringing attention to the scourge of gun violence in this way, be a call to action to all who see them.  

We will continue with this project, expand its reach, and hopefully reach the blessed day it will no longer be needed.

The catalog of this year's exhibit can be found here.


Farewell to the Organ



A farewell to the Cathedral's Austin Organ (Opus 73 - 1903) after 116 years of continuous service!

Our long-serving organ will soon make way for the arrival of Moller (Opus 6425) in the chancel, with selected ranks of the Austin organ restored as part of a new gallery organ.

For more information on the Organ Project, see complete article.
