Lenten film series will highlight human trafficking

A Lenten film and discussion series on human trafficking, sponsored by an interfaith group formed by women religious, will be presented throughout the month of March.

The film series aims to educate people about the problem of human trafficking ­— an issue that Pope Francis  addressed in his New Year’s message entitled “No Longer Slaves but Brothers and Sisters,” noted a news announcement from the sponsoring organization.

The series of four two-hour sessions will include film screenings, followed by panel discussions with Dr. Theresa Hayden, a professor in the department of criminal justice at the University of Louisville; Margeaux Gray, a survivor of trafficking, and members of the sponsoring group.

The sessions will be on the following Sundays:

  • March 1 at 1:45 p.m. at St. Augustine Church, 1310 W. Broadway.
  • March 8 at 2 p.m. at the Flaget Center, 1935 Lewiston Dr.
  • March 15 at 7 p.m. at St. Margaret Mary Church, 7813 Shelbyville Rd.
  • March 22 at 4 p.m. at St. Agnes Church, 1920 Newburg Rd.
    Members of the public are welcome to attend one or more of these sessions.
