Special Lenten Dinner/Movie/Discussion 3-15-13
This Friday, March 15th, we will be starting a special Lenten Dinner/Movie/Discussion series at the Newman Center. It will be based on the movie, Jesus of Nazareth, by Franco Zeffirelli, a superb motion picture on the life of Jesus.
We will begin our evening at 5:00 with a student-prepared Italian dinner, (Mary McGinley will be our cook). Thereafter, we will reflect on the Lordís final days as they are depicted in the film, Jesus of Nazareth. Topics to be explored will include The Last Supper, The Trial of Jesus, The Crucifixion, and the Resurrection. Our evening will conclude by 7:00 PM.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WILL BE JOINING US THIS FRIDAY BY SENDING A RETURN RSVP E-MAIL (FatherKrivak@aol.com); and as always, feel free to arrive late or leave early as your schedule demands.
