The Joint Peace and Justice Committee of St. Thomas of Villanova Parish in Rosemont and Our Mother of Good Counsel Parish in Bryn Mawr is hosting three movie nights dedicated to social justice. Each of the three films focuses on a prophetic figure or message.
The series is titled “Prophetic Voices of Our Time” and features a film about poverty, economic mismanagement and materialism. The first film will be presented on July 17. The next two dates for the series are Aug. 14 and 27.
The first movie, “The Monsenor,” tells the story of Archbishop Oscar Romero’s fight for the poor in El Salvador during the 1970s. The second film, “The Flaw,” details the most recent economic collapse and explores its roots. “I Am” is the final film, which tells the tale of one man’s journey across the world and his encounters with materialism.
Food and drink will be served starting at 6:30 p.m. in St. Thomas’ Rosemont Auditorium and the movies begin at 7. For more information, visit the Peace and Justice Committee web site.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
