Janet McKenzie's Women: Mothers, Midwives, and Missionaries

October 1, 2015:

New Testament scholar and CTU's Vice President and Academic Dean, Sr. Barbara Reid, OP, provides a lecture on Janet McKenzie's paintings titled Women: Mothers, Midwives, and Missionaries. The video also features an introduction by CTU President Mark Francis, CSV, and painting donor Barbara Marian.

CTU has had the enormous good fortune to be the recipient of five paintings by noted artist Janet McKenzie. Ms. McKenzie’s painting, “Jesus of the People,” was the winner of National Catholic Reporter’s competition in 1999 to find the face of Jesus for a new millennium. The paintings were generously donated by Barbara Marian, who commissioned the triptych featured below, and her husband, Jerry Powers.
