I just found out about an exciting opportunity this Sunday afternoon/evening.  There is going to be a showing on Sunday 1/15 starting at 4:45pm of an amazing new movie called Silence at the Music Box Theater (on the north side of Chicago), and Cardinal Cupich is going to be leading a discussion following the showing of it!  I'm trying to get a group together to go since it's a great movie and we'd get to see/hear the Cardinal!
