Art in the cathedral
Marirose Jelicich, right, an artist and designer and one of several artists who created the sacred art and furnishings for the Cathedral of Christ the Light, talked about her work, above, and how the principles of art can be applied to the liturgical vision in the documents of Vatican II as part of the Lux Gloriosa festival. Lux Gloriosa was three evenings of music and art Feb. 8-10 at the annual diocesan celebration of prayer, art and music at the cathedral. The first cathedral of the Diocese of Oakland, St. Francis de Sales, was recalled in a prayerful, loving and spirit-filled way with an evening of choral music, worship and remembrance on the first evening. Jelicich spoke on the second and the Oakland Interfaith Gospel choir offered a concert of traditional and contemporary Black gospel music and spirituals on Feb. 10. Future events can be seen at www.ctlcathedral.org.
