Film Screening of A Man of His Word

Wednesday, March 13 at 7:00PM in the Parish Life Complex

The Social Concerns Committee is hosting a night of fun and enlightenment. All are welcome (you don’t have to be a parishioner to enjoy!) to attend this screening of Pope Francis’ film A Man of His Word. This film is intended to be a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him. The pope’s ideas and his message are central to this documentary, which sets out to present his work of reform and his answers to today’s global questions. From his deep concern for the poor and wealth inequality, to his involvement in environmental issues and social justice, Pope Francis engages the audience face-to-face and calls for peace. Snacks, sodas, and refreshments will be provided to all guests. Beer will be available for purchase!
