Subversive Saints for Such a Time as This

In the Spring of 2019, members and friends of WPPC contributed to our Lent preparations by learning about and trying their hand at creating an image of a social justice hero or a faith ancestor in a creative way. They portrayed contemporary social justice activists as saints and Biblical figures in modern day situations. No artistic experience (or confidence) was required. All ages participated.
