COMING   SOON!!!  ST. JOSEPH’S  CATHOLIC  STORE is proud to present IGNATIUS OF LOYOLA ; Soldier   +  Sinner   +  Saint  PARAMOUNT THEATRE 503 VICTORIA STREET,  KAMLOOPS.  SATURDAY, 18 MARCH 2017, at 10:30 A.M.  Tickets are: $10 each advance (from St. Joseph’s Catholic Store) or $12 at the door. A modern and very human take on the story of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, often called ‘The Saint of Second Chances.’  It is an incisive and thrilling look at the life of the real man behind the legend. The appeal of this wonderful film flows from an exceptional cast led by Andrea Munoz as Ignatius and a conversion story that rivals Augustine’s and ranks among the most decisive in the history of the Church. This is a fresh, deeply engaging portrait of the Jesuits’ great founder – the former soldier who became a saint. – Most Reverend Charles Chaput Archbishop of Philadelphia, PA. An absolutely stunning portrayal of one of the greatest saints of all time! This film will inspire many to turn away from the illusory things of this world and seek to become knights of heaven and saints!  – Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC Author, Champions of the Rosary: The History and Heroes of a Spiritual Weapon     www.ignatiusmovie.com Following the Movie you are invited to share a light lunch at Sacred Heart Cathedral.
