The Foods of the Bible

The Foods of the Bible: A Saint John’s Bible Fundraiser
Tuesday, March 21 | 6:00PM – 8:00PM | The Hjemkomst Center

This fall we will be hosting one of the biggest exhibitions in our history, Illuminating the Word: The Saint John’s Bible. The exhibition features 68 original pages of calligraphed and hand-illuminated calfskin vellum that have toured only a handful of U.S. locations on their way to a permanent home at a new gallery built in Collegeville, MN.

The Minnesota project highlights a world of many faiths, cultures, and perspectives; it seeks to bring inclusivity, community, and compassion to the forefront of our arts, histories, and faiths; and we are incredibly fortunate to share it with our community.

To help defray the expenses associated with hosting an exhibition of this magnitude, we are holding a fundraiser to share our goals for the project and spread the good word. The event will feature a silent auction, cash bar, open museum tours, and an introduction to The Saint John’s Bible. We will also be sharing a fantastic meal by the Rex Cafe, featuring a selection of foods from the Bible (roast goat, fish, pitas, figs, olives, milk & honey…).

We are suggesting a donation of $50 and asking attendees to RSVP by Tuesday, March 14. To reserve a seat, call us at (218) 299-5511, ext. 6739, or email us at You may also RSVP here.
