Archbishop Lori to be Joined by 300 Area Catholics for Private Screening of Movie About Life of Jesus, Son of God, on Eve of Lent

“We cannot forget that evangelization is first and foremost about preaching the Gospel to those who do not know Jesus Christ or who have always rejected Him. Many of them are quietly seeking God, led by a yearning to see His face.”—Pope Francis

Archbishop William E. Lori, Archbishop of Baltimore, will be joined by 300 area Catholics this evening, March 4 at 7 p.m. at Regal Cinema, Hunt Valley, for a screening of the new movie about the life of Jesus Christ, Son of God.

Archbishop Lori invited local Catholics through social media and personal invitation to join him in watching the movie on the eve of Ash Wednesday, the day the Church begins observing Lent. He received an overwhelming response, as the Archdiocese received over 300 requests for tickets. The theatre holds 295 guests.

Son of God is produced by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, who also produced The Bible, and is the first major motion picture about the complete life of Jesus Christ in nearly 50 years.
