The Priesthood in Film
 
Throughout 2016, on the third Thursday of each month, we will be showing a film in Ivy Hall's ballroom featuring a different cinematic portrayal of a priest. You're invited to join us as we explore these various portrayals and discuss, during the social period following each film, the good, the bad, and the ugly of Hollywood's depictions of the Catholic Church in general and the priesthood in particular.
