An orphan boy enters the attic of a monastery and sees a statue of a man on a cross who looks hungry, so he offered the man some bread. Little did he know that that was no ordinary man.

The Miracle of Marcelino was first released in black-and-white in 1955 in Spanish, but the movie was so well-received, it has been remade in other languages. It tells of an orphan boy abandoned outside a monastery and was raised by the friars amid the Mexican Revolution. The boy’s one wish was to find his mother.

Join us for a screening of this 90-minute movie at our parish. Get your family and friends to come along!
