Paint Day

St. Joseph Pro-Cathedral, Camden, hosted a “paint day” to help in the creation of large mural that will commemorate the upcoming World Meeting of Families and the visit to Philadelphia by Pope Francis. Some 100 children and adults from the community and parish ministries donned aprons and picked up brushes for the painting task. The volunteers worked on only a portion of a 4,239-square-foot mural that will be displayed on the exterior of St. Malachy School in North Philadelphia. Being created through a paint by numbers kind of approach, the mural consists of more than 150 panels. The work is being done at seven locations, the Pro-Cathedral being the only one in New Jersey. The mural is a collaboration between the World Meeting of Families, the Independence Mission Schools, the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, Wells Fargo as the corporate sponsor, and artist Cesar Viveros who designed it. The image at bottom shows what the completed project will look like. Photos by James A. McBride
