Around the Province

Announcing — Nunc Coepi — the movie!

It is pronounced “Noonk CHAY-pee” and it means “Now I begin.”  Venerable Bruno Lanteri, founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, encourages us never to give into spiritual encouragement, but to always rise again after a fall.  To one woman, Fr. Lanteri says, “Begin again not only every day, but every hour of every day.”

Now the life of Venerable Lanteri is a movie!  “Nunc Coepi — the Life of Venerable Bruno Lanteri” will begin its release in the form of special showings at various OMV churches and shrines in both Italy and the USA.  More screenings will be posted as they are scheduled.

Information on the movie itself, include stills, trailers, screening information, and cast and crew bios can be found on the Nunc-Coepi movie page of our website.  To visit that page, click here.
