Entertaining Angels: The Dorothy Day Story
Dorothy Day is not your conventional saint. She lived hard, made mistakes and endured the consequences. But the unquenchable fire burning within her cannot be contained. She wants to make a difference. During the Depression, she vowed to house the homeless, feed the hungry, and care for the sick; her total finances amounted to 97 cents. Yet she persisted, frequently walking on stormy waters of faith. Popular stars and important themes combine in this compelling true story of the “American Mother Teresa.” Martin Sheen, Melinda Dillon and Brian Keith join Moira Kelly as Day in this moving saga of a faith not just believed, but lived.
Free-will offering. Please note that Visitation North is not handicapped-accessible.
