Using Our Gifts to Heal a Broken World





You are invited to attend this exciting interfaith event hosted by the Ignatian Volunteer Corps. A large 6' x 9' prayer wall canvas, designed by the Interfaith Artist Circle, is touring around the state and will be on display at our church for two weeks (beginning October 16) before it moves up to St. John’s University for the winter season. This unique piece of art was created by 18 artists from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths. 

On Sunday, October 17 from 3-4 pm, we invite you to attend an artist panel entitled Using Our Gifts to Heal a Broken World. The panel will feature 3 of the artists, and the discussion will focus on the piece's expression of healing and hope for our broken world. The panel of artists will include Paula Pergament, Hend Al-Mansour, and Beth Andrews. The discussion will be facilitated by Fr. Christopher Collins, SJ, the Vice President for Mission at the University of St. Thomas. The event will also be available to livestream on Facebook and Youtube.

Live music will be provided by musicians from Christian, Jewish, and Islamic traditions. In addition, several artists from the Interfaith Artist Circle will be in attendance and will have more of their works available to view and purchase. Refreshments, including wine and other beverages, with hors d’oeuvres will be provided. The suggested donation to attend is $25. We request that all guests wear masks in our church.



About the Ignatian Volunteer Corps

The Ignatian Volunteer Corps (IVC) provides mature men and women the opportunity to serve the needs of people who are poor, to work for a more just society, and to grow deeper in Christian faith by reflecting and praying in the Ignatian tradition. Incorporated into IVC is the spiritual dynamic of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus. IVC shares the same spiritual roots of Ignatius, but expresses them as lay persons.
