Progress on the Baptismal Font Mural

Next time you are in the main sanctuary, look up over the baptismal font and watch how the progress of the mural advances. The artist painting the mural is Jesús Villarreal, a Venezuelan artist and Miami resident, with an ample trajectory in the world of the arts.

This mural is not just an addition to our physical space, but an invitation to each of us. Let it inspire us to rekindle our love for the Catholic Faith and deepen our appreciation for the profound mystery of Baptism. Let us carry the visual reminder in our hearts as we strive to live out the call to holiness in our daily lives.

Mass of the Americas

By Frank LaRocca

Tuesday October 3rd 7:00 pm.

Epiphany Catholic Church - 8235 S.W. 57 Avenue, Miami, Fl, 33143.

Richard Carrillo, Conductor

St. John Neumann
Choir Director

Many people post selfies from glamorous vacation spots. Richard Carrillo’s selfies were with yellowed, centuries-old sheet music. The texts, at archives in Mexico City, touched him at two of his deepest levels. Going back to the 16th and 17th centuries, they're the first-known compositions in the language of his Aztec ancestors — and they're Catholic songs and prayers. “Those are my roots. This is where it all started,” Carrillo said gleefully at St. John Neumann Church, where he directs the choir.

He's organizing a Mass that blends Aztec and European heritages. The “Mass of the Americas,” by Los Angeles composer Frank La Rocca, will have its Miami premiere at 7:00 pm Oct. 3rd at Epiphany Church.

Carrillo plans to gather a 15-piece orchestra with 150 singers from St. Thomas University, the University of Miami and parishes around the archdiocese. But it will be a real worship service, with Father José Alvarez, pastor at Epiphany, as the celebrant. That’s important to Carrillo, who will produce the Mass as part of a doctoral thesis for the University of Miami. “To me, it’s about blending a faith experience with a music experience,” he said. “If music helps me express my joy in the Eucharist, why not share it?”

The “Mass of the Americas” earns its name well. It’s a double tribute to Mary: both as Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, patroness of the United States, and as Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of Mexico and all the Americas. First performed in 2018, the Mass blends classical music with traditional Mexican music — plus lyrics in Latin with some in Nahuatl, the indigenous language of the Aztecs.
