Cathedral Commons: Film Screening—The Philadelphia Eleven

November 15, 2023 @ 6:45 pm - 8:30 pm

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 6:45–8:15 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall only. Optional post-film discussion 8:15–8:30. Optional community dinner at 6 p.m. ($6/child; $8/adult; $25/max. family)

In 1974, a group of 11 women and their supporters organized their ordination to become Episcopal priests in an act of civil disobedience. This story is told in a compelling new documentary The Philadelphia Eleven. The 90-minute documentary film will be screened a the Wednesday evening forum on November 15.

This film tells a story that echoes today as women continue this fight for the pulpit. It explores the lives of these remarkable women who succeeded in transforming an age-old institution when they took a stand despite the threats to their personal safety and the risk of rejection by the church they loved. These women are an inspiration for a generation of women in the ministry, and a clarion call for the entire Christian Church.
