Art exhibit focuses on lay ministry
Thursday, March 23- Saturday, April 8
Location: Archabbey Library Gallery
Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, St. Meinrad, IN, is
hosting an exhibit of collages and poems that reflect on the life
of lay ministry. "Words and Images" will be on display March 23
through April 8.
The traveling exhibit originated at St. John's School of
Theology and Seminary in Collegeville, MN, and celebrates the 10th
anniversary of the U.S. bishops' document, Co-Workers in the
Vineyard of the Lord.
The exhibit includes 15 collages, along with a booklet of
accompanying poems, created by lay ministers. The exhibit is
designed to draw people into the lives and ministry of lay
ecclesial ministers and help more people think collectively about
the greater good of the Church and its mission.
In conjunction with the exhibit, Saint Meinrad Seminary and
School of Theology will host a day of reflection for lay ministers
on Friday, March 24. Details are available at:
An opening reception for the exhibit will be held at the library
