Coming Soon to a Parish (hopefully) Near You: Pauline Film Nights!

Sr. Rose Pacatte, Director of our Pauline Center for Media Studies, has already blogged about last weekend's dedication of the Parish Movie Theater at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Fremont. You can read about the dedication here.

The new parish religious education center features 8 classrooms (with mounted flat screen TV/monitors), 4 offices, a library, a gathering/meeting room, and a 135-seat theater. Sr. Rose writes that Holy Spirit is probably the first parish to construct its own movie theater, providing a "space" for faith to dialogue with culture.

We're pleased to announce that Holy Spirit will be hosting Pauline Movie Nights beginning next month--and that we here at Pauline Books & Media will be helping to lead the discussions on the films, drawing from them important and relevant connections with the gospel and our daily lives.

Here is a tentative list of dates and films. We'll be posting more on this wonderful initiative soon!
