SATURDAY AT THE MOVIES-

“The Way” We are all pilgrims “on the way”… 

Saturday, January 14, 2017

St. Basil the Great Church  – Parish Center

11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

 

Across almost all religious traditions, the desire to take a journey for a religious motive is commonplace.  Such “sacred travel” to a destination associated with the events in the life of Christ or with the Saints has long been a part of Catholic tradition.  People undertake such journeys as a way to gain a new perspective on their lives, to experience a conversion of mind and heart, or to seek God’s will for them at a certain point in their life journey.  Join with other Christian “travelers” from our parishes to view or “re-view” the 2011 movie about the pilgrimage known as The Camino, or The Way of Saint James, in the Pyrenees mountains of France and Spain.  Starring Martin Sheen, the movie follows the journey of a man whose tragic loss of his son leads him to embark on this pilgrimage, and the profound effect it has upon him.

 Free popcorn will be provided to everyone, and there will be a “concession stand”  where you can buy hot dogs and other snacks during the lunch break in the movie.  Everyone will have an opportunity to share with those at their table, the ways in which they may identify with the story and how, whether we travel far or not, our lives can be a true pilgrimage to God.
