Pray: The Story of Patrick Peyton
Thursday, Jul. 15 | 7:00 p.m. | Online interactive Movie and Zoom presentation | FREE
We are excited to have the opportunity to view the documentary film, Pray: The Story of Patrick Peyton, produced by Family Theater Productions. The film traces the remarkable life of Fr. Patrick Peyton, who championed the phrase, “The family that prays together stays together.” His life’s work was promoting the importance of saying the Rosary with others. At its peak, Fr. Peyton’s Family Rosary campaign drew crowds of two million people praying the Rosary together.
Watch Pray on a digital platform, then come to the aftershow presentation on Zoom featuring Fr. David Guffey, CSC, Director, Family Theater Productions, and Megan Harrington, who cowrote and produced the film.
