Event Details

THE ARTIST REMEMBERS: Mother Placid and the Stations of the Cross

Please join us as we celebrate the publication of this unique collaboration between Mother Placid Dempsey, O.S.B., who carved these cherry-wood reliefs over a twenty-year period, and renowned journalist and friend, George Krimsky. Their many conversations about how these carvings came to be in the Regina Laudis chapel in Bethlehem, CT, and the accompanying full-page photographs, have resulted in a stunning art book that offers a profound meditation on the 14 Stations of the Cross as they illuminate human experience.

What: Book Launch and Signing: 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 7, 2019

Who: Reading by Mother Dolores Hart, with accompanying visuals, 3 p.m. Book-signing by Mother Dolores Hart, who first identified the importance of these carvings, and Patrick de Warren, photographer of the Stations for this publication
