Parishioners at St. Thomas More in Pottstown gathered for a Feb. 10 screening of “A Man for All Seasons,” the classic film retelling of their patron saint’s life.
The Feb. 10 screening was part of the parish’s ongoing 50th jubilee celebration. With pizza and snacks in hand, attendees viewed the 1988 movie version of the play by Robert Bolt, which featured Charlton Heston, Vanessa Redgrave and John Gielgud.
More, who lived from 1478-1535, was a lawyer, statesman and chancellor in the court of King Henry VIII. As a Catholic, he refused to accept the king as the head of the Church of England, and was executed. He was canonized in 1935.
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.
