Reunion Weekend: Architecture of the Abbey Church
Join us for the Saint John’s Prep All School Reunion June 16-18.

A highlight of the afternoon of June 17 includes the lecture: “The Architecture of the Saint John’s Abbey Church” by Victoria Young at 1:15 p.m. in the Saint John’s Abbey Guesthouse.
This is a special presentation from Author Victoria Young. She’s a professor and chair of the art history department at the University of St. Thomas. Her book, “Saint John’s Abbey Church: Marcel Breuer and the Creation of a Modern Sacred Space” (2014, University of Minnesota Press) features not only the architecture of the Abbey Church, but also the back story of how the monks of Saint John’s Abbey selected Breuer as an architect.
She will also shed light on what it was like for them to work together on the church and the Saint John’s campus.
