St Croix Catholic Iconographers Guild

 

. . . Glorifying the triune God, bringing beauty to the church, and joyfully serving our neighbor through our devotion to sacred iconography.

 

This mission speaks of the guild's desire to not only continue to learn the techniques of writing icons and the theology and symbolism of iconography, but also the guild's desire to evangelize by sharing their skills and knowledge for the glory of God.

 

Testimonial from a student: "Wow! Our first workshop was nothing short of life changing. I have always wanted to paint and have never seen anything that inspired me enough to start. When my husband, a seasoned artist, asked if I was interested in taking the workshop with him…I was an immediate yes! I could not think of a better way to learn how to paint than to paint an icon of the central focus of my life, Jesus. However, this workshop went far beyond learning how to paint. I never knew how much love, prayer, symbolism, contemplation and patience went into making an icon. Each step of the process had so much meaning, brought me so much closer to God and his love for me. I am so grateful to have had this experience. I am looking forward to my next icon, as this has become one of my favorite forms of prayer!"
