Band of Sisters: Film Screening and Discussion
by Dan Armstrong
Band of Sisters, a documentary film by Mary Fishman, tells the story of Catholic nuns and their work for social justice after Vatican II. 

For Catholics who wonder what became of the nuns they knew in habits and convents many years ago, for activists who may feel profoundly discouraged given the problems of today's world, for women seeking equality in their church, and for people of all faiths yearning for an inclusive and contemplative spirituality, Band of Sisters challenges us to ask what really matters in life. 

As we seek what matters, how do we go about changing our lives and the world around us? 

Sr. Kathleen Desautels, SP, whose work at the 8th Day Center is featured in the film, Sr. Bernadine Karge, OP, a practicing immigration attorney, and Liesl Orenic, PhD, professor of history and American Studies at Dominican University will offer responses to the film. 

This event is co-sponsored by American Studies, Apparel Design and Merchandising, Catholic Studies, Dominican Legal Association/Pre-Law Minor, English, McGreal Center for Dominican Historical Studies, Political Science and the Study of Women and Gender.

The film screening will be held on Thursday, January 31, at 6 p.m. in the Priory Auditorium. DU students, faculty and staff are admitted free​. Admission for members of the public is $5.
Time: Thursday, January 31, 6:00 PM
Location: Priory Campus, Auditorium
