For over 35 years, the St. Jude Liturgical Arts Studio has accomplished various creative renovations and restorations, as well as taken active roles in the construction of new places of worship in the Roman Catholic Church. With our qualified staff of artists, designers, fabricators and craftsmen, we have been privileged to work on a variety of projects, including work for the Vatican, as well as for prestigious clients, including Mother Teresa and her Missionaries of Charity and Mother Angelica of the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). We were also commissioned for various projects for a visit by the late Pope John Paul II to the United States. Some of these projects can be seen in our portfolio and video. On all of these projects, our clients have attested to our quality workmanship and the completion of their work in an expeditious fashion.
Experience has shown us that an important factor on all extensive projects is communication with all parties concerned. Therefore, we will make every effort to assure you, our client, and your various committees, that reports will be given to inform you of the coordination and progress of our designers, artists, and craftsmen as the work moves in the various stages. This is particularly important in making decisions involving approval and completion of the overall project.
For all projects, we engage skilled personnel who are not only capable of performing the work to be done, but also are very sensitive to capturing the feelings of the original designer, of our artists and our craftspeople. The various skilled craftspeople combined have over 150 years experience in doing work exclusively for Catholic Churches and Cathedrals. Our craftspeople strive, in accord with the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works, to provide a finished product that will lend itself to inspiring worship as a work of art that will have beauty as well as longevity.
