In August 2021, we installed our Origami Peace Dove project in our Narthex. This undertaking was a labor of love, and we're grateful to the many parishioners who helped make it possible. Each dove is handmade and our group made 1,000 doves.
We hope you enjoy this unique installation, modeled after the Les Colombes exhibit at Washinton National Cathedral. These doves symbolize hope and the Holy Spirit and are a new way to say Welcome to all who walk through our doors.
The dove has been an enduring symbol in Christian art and iconography since the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. "After Jesus came up out of the water, the Holy Spirit came from heaven and descended on him "like a dove" John 1:32. It represents the Holy Spirit and is a symbol of hope and peace.
