The Holy Evangelists

Tonight the Voters of St. Paul's approved the Schumacher family request to commission original artwork of the four evangelists to hang on the front of the balcony in memory of Hilbert.  I am really looking forward to that project coming to completion.  Hib loved the gospel - it filled his heart with joy - and this way of honoring those four men through whom the Lord preserved for us His holy words is just perfect as a memorial to him.  The artist who created the paintings of our Lord on the front walls of St. Paul's will be creating these as well.  Those who sit towards the front of the Church will see the paintings as the holy Gospel is read in the midst of the congregation - and be reminded visually of these four saints through whom our Lord gave us such precious gifts.  And the whole congregation will view them as people return from the Sacrament.  Can't wait till they're done!

What a great blessing those paintings will be for your congregation. Do you have an idea when they will be complete? Do you think it might be by the end of July?

They are supposed to be finished before then, Sam. Sure hope so!

Is Kelly going to paint them?

I'm a person named Kelly who paints, but alas, it is not my job.

I'd *love* to do that, though!
