Edward Riojas, Sower of the Seminary, 2012, oil on wood.

The artist depicts the ministry of Word and Sacrament by picturing Jesus at his baptism and the Last Supper, and by placing the resurrected Jesus as the sower in the famous Parable of the Sower. The inclusion of the seminary buildings in the backdrop of the center panel highlights this as the place where men are formed for this ministry.
The Sower of the Seminary triptych was commissioned as a gift by the graduating class of 2012.
