Publication Date



This presentation highlighted the exhibition Church, Community, Creativity, on display at the Haehn Museum at St. Benedict’s Monastery through December 23. The exhibit is the result of a collaboration between the Sisters of St. Benedict and Rebecca Berru Davis, from the Theology Department at CSB/SJU. The exhibition features the ministerial work carried out by the Benedictine Sisters in the favelas of Brazil and barrios of Chile beginning in the 1960s, during the emergence of liberation theology. By “listening” to selected visual and documented testimonies of women from Brazil, Chile, and Peru, the Sisters and Dr. Berru Davis highlight the theological acumen and insights of these women, as well as their own learning that emerged from this venture to curate Church, Community, Creativity.
