The Diocese of California's annual ministries and visioning conference integrated visual arts into this year's formation activities. The Department of Faith Formation partnered with the Visio Divina program to create a community response to the Keiskamma Altarpiece, one that would include a contribution from every person attending the visioning conference.

"The Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields undertook a Year of the Artist two years ago. A small group of artists worked with the parish Christian Formation Committee to sponsor a Lenten forum series. They gathered artists in the parish to share their work and talk about the connections between their art and their faith."
