‘Lux Gloriosa’ festival celebrates
3 evenings of art, prayer, music

Three evenings of prayer, art and music are scheduled Feb. 8-10 at the Cathedral of Christ the Light as part of this year’s Lux Gloriosa (Glorious light).

“Those Who See Light,” an evening of prayer and reflection celebrating the spirit of Oakland’s first Cathedral, St. Francis de Sales, will take place in the Cathedral of Christ the Light at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 8. The Most Rev. John Cummins, bishop emeritus of Oakland; the Rev. E. Donald Osuna, former rector of the Oakland cathedral; and other ministers from Oakland’s first cathedral, including Sister Maureen Delaney, SNJM, and John McDonnell, will be among the participants.

A complimentary reception will follow the event. During the reception, Father Osuna will sign copies of his memoir about the first cathedral, “How Awesome Is This Place!”

Artist and liturgical designer Marirose Jelicich will speak in the Cathedral at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 9. Jelicich is among the artists who were involved in the creation of the sacred art and furnishings for the Cathedral of Christ the Light. A complimentary reception will follow the event.

Free-will offerings may be made at the first two events. Tickets are required for the closing event.

The Lux Gloriosa events conclude at 8 p.m. Feb. 10, when the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, under the direction of Terrance Kelly, performs traditional and contemporary black gospel music and spirituals in the cathedral. Choir members from parishes throughout the diocese will join the choir for this concert. For ticket information, see www.ctlcathedral.org. Donation is $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Concert-goers who are under 12 will be admitted at no cost. A complimentary reception will follow the concert.
