Easy Event Idea — Cinema Divina

Heat up some buttery popcorn and sponsor an evening of “Cinema Divina” at your parish. Show a meaningful, thought-provoking film, followed by a conversation about its religious themes. Here are some suggestions:

  • Watch “The Apostle” and hold a discussion about the topic of redemption.
  • During Lent — a season of journey — watch “The Way,” Martin Sheen’s recent movie about people on the famous pilgrimage, Camino de Santiago, in Spain.
  • During the Easter season watch “Babette’s Feast” and hold a discussion about grace.
  • Watch “Of Gods and Men” to initiate a conversation about vocation or community.
