DECATUR, Ga.--George Roualt's prints from the "Miserere" series will be 
hung in the Harrington Center of Columbia Theological Seminary Oct. 20-Nov. 
15.  The prints bring together the French artist's lifetime meditation on 
how the poor and oppressed have become part of the passion of Christ. 
LOUISVILLE, Ky.--A project to reclassify more than 87,000 items in the 
Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary library has been completed by 
more than 550 volunteers who came from across the country and who donated 
more than 3,900 hours of time.  A new computer system, which will enable 
individuals to access library listings from their own personal computers, 
is expected to be installed in January, according to library director 
Milton J Coalter. 
RICHMOND, Va.--Union Theological Seminary in Virginia has received a 
$550,000 challenge grant from The Kresge Foundation.  The grant will 
support fund-raising efforts for the seminary's $11,000,000 library 
construction project, now under way.  Prior to requesting assistance from 
the foundation, the seminary had raised $6.6 million toward construction 
costs.  To receive Kresge funds, the seminary must meet a challenge goal of 
$3.9 million by the end of 1996.
