Exhibit focuses on lay ministry

From Local Sources

ST. MEINRAD — Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery is hosting an exhibit of collages and poems that reflect on the life of lay ministry. “Words and Images” will be on display next Thursday through Saturday, April 8.

The traveling exhibit originated at St. John’s School of Theology and Seminary in Collegeville, Minnesota, 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: http://www.saintmeinrad.edu/continuing-formation/a-day-of-reflection/.
