On Sunday, August 5, at 1:30 pm, St. Ann’s will host a free screening of “Voices Beyond the Wall: Twelve Love Poems from the Murder Capital of the World,” directed by Brad Coley and executive produced by James Franco. The film is inspired by the writings of girls living at Our Little Roses, an Episcopal orphanage in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
Fr. Spencer Reece, an Episcopal priest and award-winning poet, spent two years at Our Little Roses helping residents to find their voices through poetry in order to heal the trauma of their pasts and prepare to transition to an uncertain future beyond the walls of the orphanage. He collaborated with Luis J. Rodriguez to edit and publish the girls’ poems in a volume called Counting Time Like People Count Stars in 2017.
Fr. Reece will preach at the 11:15 am Holy Eucharist and join us for the screening. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
