The Saint John’s Bible at St. Mary’s
The Saint John’s Bible, the world’s newest handwritten, hand-illuminated, grand-scale bible, was commissioned in 1998 by the Benedictine monks of Saint John’s Abbey and University in Collegeville, Minn., and produced under the leadership of artistic director Donald Jackson, scribe to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
It is the first such bible to be commissioned by a Benedictine Abbey since the advent of the printing press more than 550 years ago. The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Edition is a numbered, full-scale fine art reproduction of the original.
With the acquisition of the seven-volume The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Edition, St. Mary’s University invites you to explore this work of art that unites an ancient Benedictine tradition with the technology and vision of today, illuminating the Word of God for a new millennium.

The Alexander House Apostolate
"Proclaiming the Beauty, Goodness and Truth of Marriage"
One million children have their lives ripped apart annually, teenage pregnancy is all too common in our society, juvenile delinquency is rising at an alarming rate, and what is it that all of these social ills have in common? DIVORCE! And what is even worse is that we have began to accept this behavior as normal. Unless we wake up, we will continue to see our society head right down the path of "self-destruction".
The Alexander House is an international Catholic apostolate dedicated to proclaiming the beauty, goodness and truth of marriage.
