ROCKY HILL – The Gospel of Life Ministry at St. Elizabeth Seton Parish will host an art exhibit on May 29 and 30 that focuses on some of the themes of the papal encyclical Evangelium Vitae.

The exhibit is an adaptation of an art project titled "Of All the People in All the World" that has traveled the United States and abroad. That project uses grains of rice to represent people while depicting a random mix of topics that include pop culture and social concerns, such as people killed in various wars.

The exhibit at St. Elizabeth Seton will include such topics as euthanasia, murder, capital punishment, stem cells/cloning, poverty, hunger, endemic diseases, violence and war, genocide, abortion, suicide, subhuman living conditions, arbitrary imprisonment, deportation, slavery, prostitution, human trafficking and disgraceful working conditions.

The exhibit will be open to the public after the 4:30 p.m. Mass on May 29 and 7:30, 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. Masses May 30.

Information is available from the project’s chair, Greg Hildebrand, at (860 346-3304.
