Around the Province


“Nunc Coepi — The Life of Venerable Bruno Lanteri,” the new film on the life of our Founder, has been getting a lot of attention lately.  It was accepted this week as an Official Selection at the Depth of Field International Film Festival and also won three awards.  Though two of the awards were for the film’s co-producer and director Fr. John Wykes, OMV (for Sound Editing and for Voice Over Narration), the film as a whole was given an award for Excellence in the category of Inspirational Film.  Thus a hearty congratulations is due to all those who helped make “Nunc Coepi” the success that it is.

This weekend, on March 25, those attending a retreat at our OMV Parish of St. Peter Chanel Parish in Hawaiian Gardens, CA will be seeing the film as part of their retreat day.  Also, the Italian-language version of the film is getting an additional screening in Lanteri’s hometown of Cuneo (Italy).  This screening takes place on Wednesday, March 29 at the Parrochia del Sacro Cuore de Gesu (Parish of the Sacred Heart of Jesus) in Cuneo.

God bless you and continue to have a blessed Lenten season.
