What has been your experience as a lay ecclesial minister? 

Come and illuminate your journey through words and images! 


Co-Workers in the Vineyard: Words and Images of Lay Ecclesial Ministers  

From March 23 - April 8, Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library will host a special exhibit of images and poetry reflecting on the life of lay ministry.

An opening reception for the exhibit will be held at the library on March 24 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Central Time. Wine, soft drinks and light hors d'oeuvres will be served.

On Friday, March 24, Dr. Barbara Sutton will provide insight into how those living the vocation of a lay ecclesial minister interpret their experience, especially in light of the 10th anniversary of the publication of Co-Workers in the Vineyard

The Words and Images exhibit will provide a starting point for reflection and engagement of lay ecclesial ministers through engaging the imagination by an artistic process of collaging and writing. Participants will practice exploring their experience of ministry through the creative use of words and images.

Registration cost of $25 includes lunch, refreshments and retreat materials.
