Sisters to host QC premier of movie


DAVENPORT — The Congregation of the Humility of Mary will host the Quad-City premier of “Band of Sisters” Sunday, Jan. 6, at 4 p.m. at the Figge Art Museum’s John Deere Auditorium in downtown Davenport.
The 2012 documentary, produced in Chicago, tells the story of the journey of Catholic Sisters in the United States from sheltered “daughters of the Church” to citizens of the world. “Band of Sisters” illuminates the Sisters’ path from direct service to social justice to the transformation of consciousness. The film travels with women religious who continue their mission as organic farmers, environmental attorneys, peace activists, holistic health care practitioners, podcasters and more.
Director Mary Fishman will be present for audience discussion after the screening. Tickets are $5 general admission. The event is co-sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis in Clinton.
