Family Movie Night
Our parish is hosting a “family movie night” on Saturday, June 22nd at 7:00 PM in the Parish Center, as a kick-off for the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops’ 2013 Fortnight for Freedom, running from June 21st through Independence Day.
The U.S. bishops have called for a Fortnight for Freedom, a two-week period of prayer and action, to address many current challenges to religious liberty, including the August 1, 2013 deadline for religious organizations to comply with the
HHS mandate; Supreme Court rulings that could redefine marriage this month, and religious liberty concerns in areas such as immigration and humanitarian services.
We will be offering the 1981, Oscar-winning film “Chariots of Fire.” Come discover this period piece for the first time or for the first time all over again through the lenses of religious liberty, moral conscience, persecution and a commitment to faith in the face of pressure from establishment. This film deals with issues of faith, following ones conscience, refusal to compromise, standing up for one’s beliefs, and passionately achieving something for the sake of it and not just for fame and financial gain. The backdrop is sports, with an emphasis on purity of sport, putting beliefs before country, and the notion that religion and sports don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
Bring your lawn chairs and a picnic dinner and we’ll provide snacks and beverages. All parishioners are welcome. Let’s have fun on a summer evening, enjoying fellowship and an extraordinary movie!
The Parish Center South and North doors and the Conference room will remain locked during business and school hours for security reasons. Access to the parish office is through the door by the school's main entrance. We strive to continue to provide a safe and secure environment for both parishioners and students.
