We are made in the image and likeness of God. God's Presence in the world is an on-going creation. "Banners and Such" is offered as an invitation and a help for you and others to continue the work of creation. To create...to celebrate... is to be fully alive, to take the gift of life and live it with meaning. A banner is meant to be a celebration. It proclaims the hopes and dreams, joys or sorrows of a faith community. "Banners and Such" is the work of Adelaide Ortegel, a Sister of Providence from St. Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana. As an artist and teacher she has spent many years helping people grow in an understanding of the visual language and the role of the creative arts in liturgical celebration. This book has been designed from actual workshop experiences gathered from all parts of the United States and Canada.
