La Strada with Fr. Peter Cameron

Friday, February 28th, 8:00PM at The Merton Center

La Strada is a 1954 Italian movie directed by Federico Fellini. The film portrays Gelsomina, a girl who has been sold by her mother for 10,000 lire and a few kilograms of food to Zampano for food. The American Film Institute has called La Strada "one of the most influential films ever made." Pope Francis has publicly declared that he sees this film as a parallel to the life of his namesake Saint Francis of Assisi, thus making it his favoriate film. Join us with Father Peter Cameron who is the editor-in-chief of Magnificat for a discussion and analysis after the movie!

La Strada is the first film that can be called entirely 'Felliniesque.'
—Robert Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times


The two lead performers...are marvelous and the imagery is gorgeous, with Fellini's precision cutting and dramatic lighting...
—Jay Antani, Cinema Writer


Bi-Lingual Ash Wednesday Mass

Wednesday, March 5th, 12:10PM at St. Paul's Chapel

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent according to the Western Christian calendar. Lent is a period occuring 40 days before Easter, that observes a period of fasting, repentance, spiritual discipline and moderation.

We will also learn how to Irish dance for those of you who are not familiar with the Irish culture. We would like to invite all of you to come have fellowship with your brothers and sisters for a fun, memorable night!

Wednesday, March 12th, 8:00PM at Corpus Christi Church

Sunrise is an American silent film directed by F.W. Murnau, an influential German director known for being a prominent figure in the silent era. The movie portrays a married farmer that falls under the spell of a slatternly woman from the city, who tries to convince him to drown his wife. It has won an Academy Award for Unique and Artistic Production at the first Academy Awards ceremony in 1929.

David Briggs is an internationally recognized organist whose performances have engaged a wide range of audiences. He is committeed in making organ music active in the near future by giving pre-concert lectures and demonstrating the wide application of organ music. Join us in Corpus Christi Church on March 12th as David Briggs plays the organ suitable to the overall theme of this amazing silent movie!

Released in 1927, the last year of silent film, it's a pinnacle of that lost art.
—Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

Moody and melodramatic, a technical treat that grabs hold of the viewer and will not let him go.
—Dan Jardine, Cinemania



The Passion of the Christ-Ten Years Later with Producer Steve McEveety and Fr. Jonathan Morris

Wednesday, March 26th, 8:00 PM at Lerner Theater

The Passion of the Christ was directed by Mel Gibson as its goal was to portray a detailed, graphic illustration of Christ's crucifixion. Not only it raised $600 million worldwide in box-office receipts, it also indirectly asked Christians to rethink more seriously about their faith as they personally watched Jesus' suffering during the last 12 hours of His Life.

Steve McEveety is an American film producer who has over 30 years of experience in the Hollywood and entertainment industry. He has worked many years in the Mel Gibson's Icon Productions producing numerous films such as What Women Want, Payback, The Man Without a Face, Braveheart, and also The Passion of the Christ. Fr. Jonathan Morris also worked as the theological advisor during the film production. Join us in Lerner Theater as we have the honor of having both people who were greatly involved. Although a decade has passed since the release of this movie, we still can learn on how Jesus' death affects us even today.
