Finding God in the Dark Film Series is held the first Sunday of each month and is presented by Kathie Budesky, IHM, MA. When we watch a film, we are not just being entertained; we are exposing ourselves to narratives that define what is possible for us, and we often incarnate those possibilities. Please note that Visitation is not handicapped-accessible.
