Youth Grades 8-12 - Movie Night—Woodlawn

Sunday, April 24 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

The movie tonight is Woodlawn. In 1973, a spiritual awakening captured the heart of nearly every player on the Woodlawn High School football team. Their dedication to love and unity, in a newly desegregated school filled with racism and hate, leads to the largest high school football game ever played in the city of Birmingham, Alabama and the rise of superstar, Tony Nathan. This movie is  rated PG and stars Sean Astin, Sheri Shepherd, and Jon Voight.

ADORATION CHAPEL

How much worse do things have to get before we find the time to spend one hour in the presence of Our Eucharistic Lord, Jesus, in the Adoration Chapel?

If not for ourselves, for our children, our grandchildren, our church , our priests, our country, the world.

Jesus, is the only one who can change all things!
