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.
