FALL FUNDRAISER – THOMAS MERTON

On Sunday, October 4, 1:30 – 3:30 pm, St. Placid Priory presents a screening of Morgan Atkinson’s new documentary called The Many Storeys and Last Days of Thomas Merton. The filmmaker will be here to do a presentation about the documentary, with a question and answer period following.

The film is “a story of adventure and search…from his home at the Abbey of Gethsemani across America in the turbulent year of 1968 and finally to Asia for meetings with the Dalai Lama and other spiritual seekers. The purpose of the journey? As always with Merton, he seeks a fuller union with God.” This promises to be an excellent film with interesting discussion afterwards.
