Winona Interfaith Council (WIC) is hosting two films this week. “Believer,” will be shown on Friday, March 1, from 2-4 p.m. at Café Congo, First Congregational Church, 161 West Broadway.
CNN called “Believer” a “deeply personal and moving film documenting the rock band singer Dan Reynolds’ crusading campaign on behalf of LGBTQ rights in direct conflict with the teachings of his Mormon religion. ‘Believer’ zeroes in on the toll of the church’s policies, starting with an alarmingly high suicide rate among gay teens in their home state of Utah.”
The second film, “Pink Smoke over the Vatican,” will be featured on Monday, March 4, from 7-8:15 p.m. at Winona State University’s Science Lab Center (SLC), room 120, 400 Winona Street.
“Pink Smoke over the Vatican” is described as “A riveting new documentary film about the controversial movement of women seeking ordination in the Roman Catholic Church.”
It chronicles the difficult journey of women ordained as Catholic priests, beginning with the early history of the church, and provides a glimpse into the ministries of those courageous women.
