The PCS annual business meeting
will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m.
in the Wachterhauser Conference Room
on the second floor of the Post Learning Commons
adjacent to the Francis A. Drexel Library.

Following the meeting, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.,
the university librarian will treat us to a fascinating presentation
about the making of The Saint John's Bible.

"The Saint John's Bible is a work of art and a work of theology.
A team of artists coordinated by Donald Jackson in Wales
and a team of scholars in Central Minnesota
have brought together the ancient techniques of calligraphy and illumination
with an ecumenical Christian approach to the Bible
rooted in Benedictine spirituality.
The result is a living document and a monumental achievement."

After the presentation we will also
have an opportunity to view
actual volumes of the Heritage Edition
of The Saint John's Bible.


You must register to let us know
