Adopt a Sister a Great Success!

By Melanie McBride

Gertrude Kistler Memorial Library wishes to thank everyone who came out in support of the Adopt a Sister Holiday event last week. Students, faculty, and staff visited the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus at New Sharon to bring holiday cheer. We sang carols, had sweet treats, and passed out gifts from Santa. The Sisters of New Sharon were thrilled with their presents. They sent a lovely reply wishing all of us at Rosemont a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

A special thank you to all those who signed Christmas cards for the Sisters. Your help was appreciated.

Library Hosts St. John's Bible Presentation

On April 17th the Gertrude Kistler Memorial Library hosted a presentation by David Allaway on the creation of the St. John’s Bible. In 1998 St. John’s Abbey and University in Minnesota commissioned Donald Jackson, world famous calligrapher and scribe to the Queen of England, to create a hand-written and illustrated Bible. The St. John’s Bible is one of a kind; connecting traditional artistry with modern technology.

David, a former associate of fashion designer Donna Karan, spoke beautifully of the creation of the St. John’s Bible from its inception to its current world tour. A BBC documentary (which will soon be available at the library!) was shown, followed by a powerpoint presentation and finally the showing of the Heritage Edition (an abbreviated copy of the original Bible). Students, faculty, staff, and friends of the College gathered together to view the unique beauty of the “finest book ever printed using modern technology.”

Words alone cannot express the beauty of the St. John’s Bible. We encourage you to visit their website at http://www.saintjohnsbible.org/
