Saint Cecilia – Patron Saint of Music
According to the Acts of Cecilia: “While the profane music of her wedding resounded, Cecilia was singing in her heart a hymn of love for Jesus, her true spouse.” For this reason, Saint Cecilia became the patron saint of music, singers, musicians, and composers. This plaque depicts St. Cecilia holding a musical instrument. She is surrounded by other vocal musicians. This solid bronze plaque honors one of the early great saints and martyrs in the Church.
