Advent Luncheon - Virtual Program

Praying with “It’s a Wonderful Life”

Tuesday, December 15 from 11:30am - 1:30pm

Advent Luncheon - Virtual Program

Any discussion of great Christmas movies has to include Frank Capra’s classic 1946 film It’s a Wonderful Life.

Discover how we can use this classic holiday film to guide our prayer during the season of Advent. As we follow George Bailey’s footsteps, how can our perspective be changed from moments of despair to a new sense of hope. Do George and Clarence have a message for you?

In order to ensure a safe and healthy experience, and to broaden the audience, our Advent Lunch this year will be virtual. Grab your meal and get comfortable, as we bring Fr. Jim Shea, SJ to you live via Zoom. Everyone who registers will receive a recording of the talk, allowing you to watch it again and again – just like you do each year with “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

Fr. Jim Shea, SJ, is a member of the Midwest Province of the Society of Jesus. Before coming to the Jesuit Retreat Center in Parma, he served for several years at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago.
