Documentary: Band of Sisters

March 19, 2014

Time: 8:00 p.m. - 9:45 p.m.

Location: Cinema Detroit (3420 Cass Avenue, Detroit)


The documentary Band of Sisters highlights "the remarkable journey of Catholic nuns in the United States, from daughters of the Church to citizens of the world."

UDM's University Ministry will sponsor a showing of the film at Cinema Detroit in Detroit's Midtown area, Wednesday, March 19.

Band of Sisters tells the story of Catholic nuns and their work for social justice after Vatican II in the 1960s. For Catholics who wonder what became of the nuns they knew in habits and convents many years ago, for activists who may feel profoundly discouraged given the problems of today's world, for women seeking equality in their church, and for people of all faiths yearning for an inclusive and contemplative spirituality, Band of Sisters challenges us to ask what really matters in life. And as we seek what matters, how do we go about changing our lives and the world around us?

The film will be shown one night only at Cinema Detroit, at 3420 Cass Avenue, two blocks south of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. See the Cinema Detroit site for theater information. Tickets are $7, but admission is free with a valid UDM ID!
