Movie: Power In My Hands

An all-star cast uncovers the beauty, timelessness and power of the prayer of the rosary. This movie represents the faces of America and proposes the simple and yet profound power of the rosary for all people of all ages to usher in an era of peace, harmony and most of all hope.

Two Viewing Times:
Friday, October 19 at 10:00am in the St. Matthew/St. Mark Room
Sunday October 21st at 3:00pm in the Youth Room – Use doors closest to the Gym to Enter.

“I think America needs this right now…I don’t know of a time in our history where we have needed the rosary more than right now.” – Jeff Cavins
