The Arts and Ecumenism: The Word in Color, Action, Music, and Form

The Mount Tabor Ecumenical Centre for Art and Spirituality presents an international symposium sharing Catholic and Protestant approaches to sacred art through the lenses of history, theology, liturgical contexts, and post-Vatican II developments with specific references to areas of exchange between American and European viewpoints.The final weekend of the Symposium in October 2017, in Orleans MA, will be the culmination of this exploration of sacred arts and ecumenism — Arts in Celebration: The Word in Color, Action, Music, and Form — focusing on the creativity behind and expression in both the visual and performing arts. The Community of Jesus will host demonstrations of mosaic, fresco, and Gregorian chant; lectures and panel discussions; exhibits of contemporary sacred art by artists Susan Kanaga and Filippo Rossi; liturgies of the Divine Office and Holy Eucharist, and a fully staged presentation of Vaughan Williams’ opera, The Pilgrim’s Progress, performed by the internationally-acclaimed choir Gloriæ Dei Cantores, and Elements Theatre Company in the Church of the Transfiguration on Cape Cod.
