A few days ago, UST leadership attended a private screening of "Cabrini" a film celebrating the life of Saint Mother Cabrini, by Angel Studios. The life of St. Cabrini is definitely one to be pondered, inspired by and revere, particularly during this Lenten season for prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Plan to go watch when it premieres tomorrow, Friday, March 8!

Thanks to Angel Studios for sending the invitation for The Cabrini Movie to our very own MAX Studios at UST! What a great evening and powerful movie!
