This year, St. Paul’s popular movie series Spirituality on the Silver Screen expands to eight Wednesdays in Epiphany!

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!

January 9: Ida (2013) — Set in 1961 Poland, during the Stalinist dictatorship, in a majestic convent, an orphaned young woman—a novice—is ordered by her Mother Superior to visit her aunt in Lodz before she takes orders. “Ida” asks the question, What do you do with the past once you’ve re-discovered it? Does it enable you, redeem you, kill you, leave you longing for life, longing for escape? The answers are startling. Hosted by Thomas Brown.
