THE CATHOLIC ART INSTITUTE INVITES YOU TO
A Christmas Tour
Sunday, December 12th at 2:00pm
at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC
During the hustle of the holidays, we invite you to enter more deeply into the Advent season by spending an afternoon surrounded by beautiful religious art. Join us for a special tour led by William Newton and Natalie Peters, who will guide us through reflection and commentary on selected works of art. The theme of this tour is inspired by readings from the Gospel of Luke that are featured during Sunday Masses throughout Advent. We hope this event will delight your senses and draw you more deeply into the meaning of Christ’s birth this Christmas.

Newton is a graduate of the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, The University of Notre Dame Law School, and Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London.
