 The Epiphany Sacred Arts Guild's 15th Anniversary Exhibition 'Windows Into Heaven' held at the St. John Paul II Pastoral Centre featured the art of 16 Guild members who produced over 36 works. 

The work was shown both in the Karol Wojtyla Hall (below) and in a more intimate setting of break-out rooms A and B.

Since our October 12-20th Exhibition, we have visited Christ The Redeemer Church (seen below), St.

Anthony's Church both in West Vancouver, and St. Pius X Church in North Vancouver and have

shown original works and framed prints, religious jewellery, rosaries, and other items for display and

sale.  Visit us on Facebook to see photos of our parish exhibits.

liturgical and religious art for the diocese.
