Join us to see “Just Mercy”

Come join your fellow parishioners to see “Just Mercy” at the AMC theatre at 234 W. 42nd St. on Thursday evening, January 16, 2020. The film begins at 7:15, and afterwards we will visit a nearby diner for coffee and conversation about our experience. Based on the book of the same name, Just Mercy tells the powerful true story of Bryan Stevenson, founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative, a civil rights organization in Montgomery, Alabama. Stevenson has represented capital defendants and death row prisoners in the deep South since 1985. He also led the creation of two highly acclaimed cultural sites which opened in 2018: the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, which chronicle the legacy of slavery, lynching, and racial segregation, and the connection to mass incarceration and contemporary issues of racial bias. The film stars Jamie Foxx, Michael B. Jordan, and Brie Larson. Please join us for a thought-provoking beginning of the weekend honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. Please let Mother Liz know if you plan to participate.
