About: Deacon Paul O. Iacono
- I am an ordained Roman Catholic deacon from the Diocese of Providence, Rhode Island, USA. My wife and I founded the Fra Angelico Institute for the Sacred Arts in 2009. We received the blessing, and permission to proceed with implementation, from his Excellency The Most Reverend Thomas J. Tobin D.D. in 2010. The mission of the Institute is threefold: to promote the prayerful creation of Christian sacred art in the traditions of both the Western and Eastern Rites of the Church, to promote understanding and evangelization of the truth, goodness, and beauty of God as expressed through Sacred Scripture and the teachings of the Church, and to help link the the artist's personal prayer life to their creative process. We welcome you to write to us if you have any questions and subscribe to our blog at fraangelicoinstitute.com.
