9/11 Related Events

As the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11 loom, I will try and post events commemorating that terrible morning that might be of interest to our readers. Here is the first.
Sacred Heart University will host a screening of the film "Of Gods and Men," directed by Xavier Beauvois. This film is loosely based on the life of the Cistercian monks of Tibehirine in Algeria. It tells a story of eight French Christian monks who live in harmony with their Muslim brothers. Following the screening of the film there will be a discussion led by Michael W. Higgins, Ph.D., SHU’s vice president for Mission and Catholic Identity. There will also be light refreshments served.
The screening will take place September 13, 2011 at 7 p.m. in the university's Schine Auditorium.
