Movie Night Saturday 27th April:HACKSAW RIDGE’ is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss who, in Okinawa during one of the bloodiest battles of WW2 saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WW2 to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honour. The film comes with a Restricted 15 label and depicts graphic & realistic war scenes. The film was a winner of 9 Aacta Awards included Best film, best Director and Best Actor.

BYO takeaway tea from 5.15pm. Hot drinks provided. Enquiries to Irene 332 7306.

As disciples of Christ we pray that we learn to recognise and respond to Jesus’ invitation to love without reserve.

As disciples of Christ, may we never be afraid of proclaiming the Good News and to care for those we see to be in need.

May our hearts become a home for the word of God.
