"Cast Your Bread Upon The Waters"


A New public Mural at St. Paul in the Desert

Please join us for a mural dedication at St. Paul of The Desert

  January the 20, 2019 from 1:30 pm to 4 pm

during the annual MLK Ceremony and Reception.




 The Church of St. Paul in the Desert has been in Palm Springs for 80 years and has always been engaged with the community and the opportunity to collaborate with the Palm Springs Public Arts Commission to contribute to a neighborhood mural is ideal for making some of that connection visible.


Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley are home to several peoples, who are not always honored or are not seen as connected to each other.  This mural, "Cast Your Bread Upon The Waters" by local Artist Bernard Hoyes will bridge that gap, connecting the entertainment, recreation and agriculture focus of the desert through water, and acknowledging the Native People, the Mexican-American,  and the African-American presence in our Valley.


The Mural celebrates iconic images of St. Paul the Hermit, Water, Agriculture, Holly-Palm Springs connections and the images of three local clergy who worked with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights in Palm Springs.


A lot of thought was put into the design of this mural, it was selected among several design proposals from local artists because of the multicultural representation and figures it displays that we hope will draw people in - to look and to look again.  That is a major reason why I am excited about the Mural.  It provides an invitation for people to come onto the St. Paul's Campus where they can be inspired, find a place to rest, and connect with the Holy as they understand it.

SYNCONA MESA,
my sanctuary, watercolor impressions of the Land, th
e flora and fauna, bone dry, and under the spell of recent drought. Being the sole guest for many stellar events, My tentacles are ever grasping, to possess the interaction of the live vistas that avail themselves. Seems I am in permanent observation, exposed to the natural changes of the Seasons.
