A Catholic Community in Solana Beach, California

Movie Screening

Please join us for a community screening of The Sultan and the Saint.

A true story of Muslim and Christian peace making. An acclaimed film that has received over 19 awards and been featured on PBS, the story follows two men of faith, one a traveling Christian preacher, the other the ruler of a Muslim Empire, bucked a century of war, distrust, and insidious propaganda in a search for mutual respect and common ground. It is the story of Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt, and their meeting on a bloody battlefield during the period of Christian- Muslim conflict known as the Crusades.

Light refreshments will be provided and the screening will begin promptly at 6:45 PM. A short discussion will follow the film.
