See three incredible perspectives from the Church of Our Saviour on Park Avenue.
The photographers, Martin Jernberg, Michael Kearney, and Jeffrey Bruno, have diverse backgrounds and styles but all share a common bond: their faith. Jernberg is a travel/adventure photographer and videographer who has traveled the world. Kearney is an up-and-coming street and documentary photographer who has worked with Jernberg on many occasions. Bruno is a photojournalist who specializes in capturing the Catholic faith around the globe. See through their eyes what the experience of Ash Wednesday is like in the city of bright lights.
“For me this is the second Lent that I have really taken seriously. So I’m excited to be photographing something so special and ready for a powerful month of prayer, fasting and constant conversion. It’s a time to really focus on God’s plan for us and let ‘His will be done.'”
“For me, and I think for the whole Church, Lent is a time to re-awaken what’s most important. It’s a time when we regain our focus, and put aside the things that distract from Jesus, allowing us to recenter ourselves on Him. It’s a time for silence and a time for prayer.”
“For the past several years, Lent has been a time of great grace. It’s challenging, but it’s beautiful. And It’s always incredible to see packed churches on Ash Wednesday, especially in this town. It’s a sign of hope that so many still realize God’s mercy and grace are waiting for them.”
