Living Stones Vienna – Deepening faith through arts and architecture

Living Stones Deepening faith through arts and architecture


In this experiment you will discover the oldest church of Vienna (St Ruprecht) and the Jesuit Church in baroque style using different approaches (historical, liturgical and biographical). After a daily instruction you build up a welcome service for each church. By showing the church’s highlights you invite people to realize even more than they saw at first. Singing together encourages our encounters and helps to experience the spiritual meaning even more deeply. Arts and architecture can become a way to God.
