Heritage Edition of the Saint John’s Bible Display


Thursday, April 12, 2018 - Thursday, May 31, 2018

Location: Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas
City: Rogers

The Heritage Edition of the Saint John’s Bible will be on display at Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas in Rogers through May 31. A public blessing to commemorate the Bible’s visit was held April 12. Four Catholic health ministries collaborated to bring the Year of the Saint John’s Bible to Arkansas in recognition of the 175th anniversary of the founding of the Diocese of Little Rock. The public is welcome to view the Bible from 6:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays near the donor wall in the lobby of Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas. At 11:45 a.m. every Wednesday, there will be a page turning and reflection. The Saint John’s Bible was commissioned by the Benedictine monks of Saint John’s Abbey and University in Collegeville, Minn., in 1998 and was completed in 2011. The original manuscript of seven volumes remains at St. John University, but 299 sets were created as a “Heritage Edition” for travel and display around the world.
