Join us as we welcome noted speaker, author, and ecclesiastical tailor, Krista West, who will lead us on an exploration of the Orthodox Christian approach to beauty and why beauty is such an important part of the Orthodox tradition.

Opening with an explanation of the theological understanding of beauty within the Church, Khouria Krista will provide illuminating information on how beauty has been perceived and valued throughout the centuries and how it is very much a part of our calling as Orthodox Christians today along with practical advice for bringing more beauty into our lives and our churches.

Kh. Krista is the author of The Garments of Salvation: Orthodox Christian Liturgical Vesture, as well as a popular podcaster on Ancient Faith Radio with her ‘Opinionated Tailor’ series, and has worked as an ecclesiastical tailor for over 20 years. Engaging and informative, this presentation guarantees you won’t look at beauty the same way again!
