Arts from Granda

As part of the ongoing Arts Initiative we have been pursuing on the NLM, we have been showcasing various examples of the sacred arts being pursued today, both to show for your own edification, as well as to hopefully help to further foster the pursuit and commissioning of these arts as part of a new liturgical movement. We are pleased today to present to you today some of the work of Granda Liturgical Arts.

From St. Kilian chapel within the Church of St. Ann in Coppell, Texas, comes a reredos in the Spanish baroque style.

From the Shrine Church of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama, comes some lovely neo-gothic work.

A hanging pyx in the form of a dove which was originally designed for the Discalced Carmelite nuns of the Carmel of Jesus, Mary and Joseph in Valparaiso, Nebraska, but which has since become one of Granda's standard offerings.

Details from a monstrance designed for St. John Cantius church in Chicago by one of their parishioners and realized by Granda.

From the Basilica in Mission San Juan Capistrano.
