Saint John's Bible

Saint John's Bible

The Saint John’s Bible is the first handwritten, illuminated Bible commissioned since the advent of the printing press. It was commissioned in 1998 by the Benedictine monks of Saint John’s Abbey and University (in Collegeville, Minnesota) to ignite the spiritual imagination of believers throughout the world and to illuminate the word of God for a new millennium.

Holy Name Church is honored to have one of only 299 Limited Heritage Editions of the 4 Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles on display here until December, 2017. While this portion of the Bible is with us, we'll host a variety of events to share and celebrate this glorious work of art.
