Calvary

a film by John Michael McDonagh

2014

102 minutes

Father James is a small-town priest in Ireland whose Sunday confessions suddenly include a threat to kill him in a week's time as a matter of principle. Deeply troubled and conflicted about how to respond, Father James tries to go on with his calling through that week.

The film has won several awards and is found on many critics’  lists of the 10 best films of the year.

“Do not despair; one of the thieves was saved.

Do not presume; one of the thieves was damned.”

--attributed to St. Augustine



Sponsored by the Office of Mission & Identity, this program screens feature films and offers the opportunity for reflection and discussion afterwards.  Films which highlight themes from St. Ignatius' Spiritual Exercises are selected.  They remind us of the constant dialogue that goes on between God and ourselves. 

There is no charge.  For further information, contact Fr. Don Petkash at 330-929-4205, x. 149

Watch Walsh Jesuit website in September for announcement of movie titles for next academic year.
