Throughout the year, the people of St. Elisabeth’s gather for retreat, book and film study and deeper faith exploration.

The “doctrine of humanity” proposes that our spiritual journey consists of an endless, repetitive cycle of creation, sin, judgment, repentance and redemption. Explore these themes in the films presented. Explore related scripture passages. Connect with your personal experiences. Discover insights and implications.
