Dinner and Screening of The Sultan and the Saint

September 25, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Everyone is invited to dinner and a screening of The Sultan and the Saint, an Emmy nominated documentary chronicling 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. The evening is part of St. Ann’s program, Instruments of Peace, devoted to St. Francis and his quest for peace.

Instruments of Peace is an original, arts-based, multi-general curriculum conceived by our clergy and funded with a grant for congregational development by Episcopal Ministries of Long Island. Designed for parishioners and neighbors of all ages, the program will celebrate the life and legacy of St. Francis and his concern for peace building. Please join us of any and all of the following:
