What we do and why we do it

What we do and why we do it

The Canadian Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums was formed in 1999 as a not-for-profit interfaith group that is committed to the restoration, preservation and increase in artistic patrimony of the collections and buildings of the Vatican Museums, while furthering the understanding and knowledge of its members of these works of art through lectures, meetings and visits to the Vatican. The Patrons help the Vatican Museums in:

  • Spreading knowledge of the specific cultural and spiritual goals of the Vatican Museums as well as the various Vatican offices and basilicas in Rome and the collections they hold
  • Supporting the multiple activities of the Vatican Museums and promoting restoration of other works of art for the Holy See under Museum Direction authority
  • Promoting the acquisition of new works which complement the existing collections
  • Supporting future expansions of the Museums
