The Jubilee Museum was established in 1998 by Fr. Kevin F. Lutz for the purpose of preserving the Catholic mind and memory. The museum embraces primarily liturgical art and secondarily any art that in some way tells the story directly or indirectly of the lives of Christ, Mary, the saints, and the history of the Catholic Church. The museum also embraces some art that is merely Christian and helps reference Christian history and the congregations of the Reformation. The museum holds in high esteem the Jewish faith and preserves a significant collection of Jewish art and history. The Museum serves a three-fold purpose: 1) Preservation of our historical patrimony in art.2) Education through the teaching power of art3) Restoration of artistic and liturgical items to sacred use in the Diocese and as far away as the domestic and foreign missions. Tours are conducted so as to reveal the truths of our Faith and the continuity of our history. They are open to all people. The ultimate goal in the years ahead is to create a comprehensive Catholic cultural center with an international reputation, a place for scholarly research, the preservation of art, the display of significant collections brought to the city of Columbus. Its method will be one of historic accuracy and an apologetic approach so that we may offer to Catholics and others the rich beauty of our Faith.
