Celebrating the Year of Consecrated Life

By Nichole Rustad

University of Dayton Libraries will join the rest of the campus community and the world in celebrating the Year of Consecrated Life with a multimedia exhibition opening Feb. 9 which highlights consecrated men and women through personal reflection, photography, artwork and artifacts.

Charism, Character and Calling will include profiles of Marianists and other vowed religious from the University of Dayton and surrounding community. Artifacts and photos from all three special collections within University Libraries will be on display, including items from the Catholic Sisters collection and materials used in final vow services.

Profiles and personal reflections from more than 30 vowed religious, as well as artwork including paintings, quilts, poems, illuminations, sketch books and sculptures are on display to show other ways vowed religious live their call. 

Videos on display profiling six consecrated men and women highlight Consecrated life in four unique ways: discerning the Call, living the Call, life beyond the vocation and the importance of community.

The videos will be used in the exhibit and during special events on campus throughout the Year of Consecrated Life. You can view the videos by clicking on the title in the Related Links box on the left.

Charism, Character and Calling opens Feb. 9 on the second floor of Roesch Library and runs through March 31.
