Dominican Church Claddagh
The Priory Institute offers the following online Summer School in 2021. Remember art can be an entry point into theology and life.

This summer we are offering a repeat of the 2018 one-week online summer school motivated by a significant question posed by Pope John Paul II in his Letter to Artists: Does the Church Need Art?

Hence, we will examine the historical teachings of the Catholic Church concerning architecture, pictorial art, music, and literature, and explore ways in which individual art forms harmoniously unite with the worshipping community to create a beautiful house for the Lord.
The course consists of six recorded presentations by Michael Dunleavy OP and is very flexible as it is delivered entirely online from:
