For the first event of the season, we are pleased to feature two documentary projects that recount the history of efforts to preserve sacred space in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
We will be showing short films: one on St. Peter Claver produced by the Advocates and Descendants of St. Peter Claver presented by Mrs.
Adrienne Harris and a second on St. Laurentius and St. Peter Claver produced and presented by Ms. Francesca Reznik.
A discussion with the presenters will follow the screenings.
Adrienne Harris, a lifelong member of St. Peter Claver, has worked for many years to collect and preserve the history of the parish.
Francesca Reznik, a 2019 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, investigated the fight to save St. Laurentius for her senior thesis.

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.
