Our Upcoming 2018 Lenten Series
Feb 2, 2018
Looking for something to enhance your Lenten experience? Share your Wednesday evenings us and watch "Jesus of Nazareth" at 6:00 pm in the Life Center Hall beginning Wed, Feb. 21. It’s a PG-rated film and families are welcome!
Our Lenten series for this year will feature 6 successive Wednesday night presentations of the highly acclaimed film by Franco Zeffirelli, Jesus of Nazareth, celebrating its 40th anniversary! Each week we will view a one hour portion of the film, preceded by a short reflection on that portion of Jesus’ earthly life. The film covers the entirety of Jesus’ life, from the angel’s Annunciation to Mary to the post-Resurrection events. Info-Bill Gent, email@example.com.
