You are invited to the convent for movies on Thursday nights at 7 PM! The idea is to show "old movies that are Catholic in matter (*1 Confess" by Hitchcock), characters ("The Sound of Music"). Historical drama (A Man of All Seasons") or theme (*Going My Way). But to be honest, some of the movies we are considering are "newer" because most are being drawn from the 100 best Catholic films list found online and it includes all eras of movie making. Please join those who have chosen to enjoy movies that can make familiar faces from church and school into friends who can laugh and cry together. Help build the parish family. Refreshments will be provided.
