Dorothy Day dedicated herself to social activism, but also committed her life to the Catholic faith. Her impact is still felt today, as Pope Francis included her in a list of Americans who built a better future.

You can learn more about Dorothy Day next month at Graymoor.

The Holy Mountain Franciscan Retreat Center recently added a film festival program, which will begin on Friday, October 21. The first film slated to be screened is “Entertaining Angels: The Dorothy Day Story.”

The film will be shown between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the Graymoor library on the fifth floor of the main building. The cost is $25 to attend and includes lunch.

Each month, a film that focuses on exploring the relationship between faith, culture and lived experience through spirituality will be screened. “Entertaining Angels” stars Moira Kelly as Dorothy Day and was released in 1996.
