Please join us for the screening of A Question of Habit, a documentary that examines the wide variety of visual images of Catholic nuns and sisters used in contemporary U.S. culture. Over 30 women religious, cultural critics, historians and artists were interviewed including: Sr. Helen Prejean (Dead Man Walking), Tom Fontana (Oz, Homicide), Robert Orsi (Madonna of 115th Street). The film is narrated by Susan Sarandon.
The Student Representative Council welcomes the CTU community to come together to share our cultures through cuisine, song, and story. Bring a favorite traditional dish to share the flavor of your heritage (enough for 10-20 serving would be great).
Tell us a story or sing a beloved song -- bless our ears with the sounds of your home place. Food and entertainment contributions are welcomed and encouraged.
Band of Sisters is a documentary about Catholic sisters and their work for social justice after Vatican II. The film premiered in September 2012 to sold-out audiences at Chicago's Gene Siskel Film Center and has begun to tour cities across the U.S. Director Mary Fishman will be present for discussion after the screening.
