@ St. John Vianney Activity Center - Dining Room


Which Way Home: Dinner & a Movie to Celebrate our Missions

SS_Mission Movie NightThe documentary film, Which Way Home, shows the personal side of immigration through the eyes of children who face harrowing dangers with enormous courage and resourcefulness as they endeavor to make it to the United States. The film follows several unaccompanied child migrants as they journey through Mexico en route to the U.S. on a freight train they call “The Beast.”

 

These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow. They are the ones you never hear about – the invisible ones.

We will serve free pizza and other movie concessions! Please RSVP by September 10th by completing the form below, or by emailing Mercedes or calling 281.497.4434. This film is not rated, but is appropriate for ages 12+.

7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in the Activity Center Dining Room. See our  facilities map for directions.

 

“I note that the protection of migrant children is an especially important issue for the Catholic Church, as one of Jesus’ first experiences as an infant was to flee for his life from King Herod with his family to Egypt. Indeed, Jesus Himself was a child migrant fleeing violence. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph were asylum-seekers and faced the same choice as the one facing thousands of children fleeing to the United States each year” (Bishop Mark Seitz of El Paso).
