At their best, movies can move, inspire and teach us like no other art form. This year, St. Paul’s popular movie series Spirituality on the Silver Screen expands to eight Wednesdays in Epiphany! St. Paul’s parishioners will host screenings of movies that have particular spiritual significance to them, and lead short discussions afterwards.

All “reel spirituality” screenings begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Brooks Room. Free admission and free popcorn, courtesy of the Adult Forum Committee.

Come join us for a movie and discussion!
