“Art is capable of making visible our need to go beyond what we see, and it reveals our thirst for infinite beauty, for God.” —Pope Benedict XVI
A cathedral is not constituted by its grandeur, but by housing the cathedra, the seat of apostolic authority in each diocese.
Some cathedrals are humble parish churches elevated to seat of the diocese and tell the story of the birth and growth of the local church. Other cathedrals are purpose-built icons of the diocese. As eclectic the style of the world’s cathedrals may be, each serves as mother church, and within each is a unique opportunity to catechize and evangelize through beauty.
EverGreene has been entrusted with the restoration, conservation, and new design of liturgical artistry programs and furnishings in dozens of cathedrals, basilicas, and national shrines.
