- St. Giuseppe Moscati - MONDAY, June 5, at 7pm in the Ministry Center Hall. Considered "the holy physician of Naples", Dr. Moscati is one of the greatest modern saints you've never heard of. Born in the early 20th century to a wealthy family, he devoted his medical career to serving the poor. He was also a medical school professor, and a biochemistry pioneer who discovered insulin. Devoted to both physical and spiritual heath, he considered his practice as a ministry to the sick and afflicted. The film is in Italian with English subtitles.
- St. John Baptist de la Salle, Patron Saint of Teachers - THURSDAY MORNING, June 15, at 9:15 am. Come see the inspiring story of a 17th century French priest who reluctantly became involved in educating poor children and in the process became the founder of the Brothers of Christian Schools, an order know today as the de La Salle Christian Brothers. Actor Mel Ferrer gives a heartfelt performance as St. John Baptist de La Salle, a priest from a wealthy upper-class family who gave up everything to serve the needs of educating poor children, facing tremendous opposition along the way. His story is one of God’s Providence, of great charity and perseverance, and of a genuine application of the Gospel to daily life in the classroom. His writings have become educational classics, and his meditations continue to inspire Catholic educators around the world to “see Christ beneath the rags of those confided to your care.
- The Gardener of God - TUESDAY, June 20 at 7pm in the Church Hall. Gregor Mendel is the father of modern genetics, a science that has changed the world. He was also a Catholic priest and Augustinian monk who lived in the 19th century in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Gardeners, scientists, and Villanova fans will want to see his story!
