Each weekend as we attend mass at Saint Anselm Church we are surrounded by works of religious art. They enrich our emotional experience at mass and inspire a quiet, contemplative atmosphere in our communal worship. However, we have seen them so often that we fail to see them. We have forgotten or do not appreciate what they are and what they are trying to tell us. It is as though we attend mass in a religious art gallery with our eyes closed, not seeing and understanding what has been placed there to enhance our faith.

The pedestal of the altar added in 1988, is a sculpture’s adaptation of Leonardo da Vinci’s
painting of “The Last Supper”.
