September 10, 2009—TOLEDO—The Toledo Catholic Diocese is looking for artists of all ages and mediums to submit Catholic themed artwork celebrating the Year for Priests as declared by Pope Benedict XVI. Art will be entered into a traveling art show that will tour the dioceses’ 19 county area. The show begins in late March during Holy Week and will conclude during the diocesan Priest Convocation in late June.

Pope Benedict XVI has declared the Year for Priests from June 19, 2009 to June 19, 2010. The Holy Father has asked that this year be a time for recognizing the priest’s commitments to the church though prayer and acts of acknowledgment of their loyalty to God. The Toledo Catholic Diocese is asking the community to join in the celebration by calling on all area artists to share their talents to help honor priests.

All submissions will be reviewed by the diocesan Year for Priests art committee for acceptance into the show. Entries are limited to three per artist, and must first be submitted through digital photo on a CD-ROM disk or photograph to the diocesan office of communications or by E-mail to no later than

January 15, 2010 at 5 p.m. Each piece of artwork must be original and professionally finished. Multi-media and performance art is not eligible. Art submissions will be divided into two categories, K-12 and Adult.
