Radical Grace Movie Screening and Lunch
Date: March 15, 2016

When the Vatican reprimands U.S. nuns, citing their "radical feminism", three fearless nuns risk their place in the Church to follow another higher calling: social justice.
One sister takes on Church patriarchy, another finds hope in the former prisoners she counsels, and the third launches a cross-country Nuns on the Bus tour, leveraging her newfound fame to spotlight social needs. These sisters "bring humor and down-to-earth grit to an epic battle for justice, equality and the dignity of women" (Gene Siskel Film Center).
Following their struggles through the election of Pope Francis, Radical Grace captures a period of dramatic transformation as the Catholic Church grapples with the modern word.
