HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital is hosting a unique event for community members to learn about and see in person the Heritage Edition of The Saint John’s Bible on Thursday, October 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Monsignor Klimek Auditorium. Community members will be able to explore this work of art, which unites an ancient Benedictine tradition with the technology and vision of today.

In this captivating presentation, Jim Triggs, executive director of The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Program, will share stories of “illuminated encounters” with the Bible. In 1998, Saint John's Abbey and Saint John’s University commissioned renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson to produce a hand-written, hand-illuminated Bible. This event is free, but registration is required by calling 715-717-7300 or online: https://giving.hshs.org/Register.

Thanks to the generosity of community donors, volumes of the Heritage Edition of the Saint John’s Bible are currently on display at HSHS Sacred Heart and St.  Joseph’s hospitals along with the Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this presentation to our community members and hope they walk away with a renewed sense of wonder and spiritual belief,” said Eric Butters, manager, spiritual care services at HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals. “The Saint John’s Bible truly is a work of art.”
