On behalf of the Archdiocese of Chicago's Department of Parish Vitality and Mission, Cardinal Blase J. Cupich will be hosting a discussion after the 4:45 p.m. showing of Martin Scorsese's SILENCE on Sunday, January 15th. Martin Scorsese's film SILENCE is an adaptation of Shūsaku Endō's 1966 novel. This film adaptation tells the story of Jesuit missionaries in 17th century Japan who accompany the Catholic Japanese population amidst their persecution.
Cardinal Cupich will be hosting a conversation and reflection with the audience after the film. This is a unique cultural opportunity for the Chicago community to experience together and we strongly encourage people of all religions and backgrounds to join us at the for this event.
