St. Germaine Movie Night
After the Saturday Vigil Mass, St. Germaine gathers for pizza, sub-sandwiches, popcorn, and other snacks and watches a film specificaly chosen to enlighten, educate, and entertain. It's a wonderful chance to get to know other parishioners, and to enjoy the common bond Christ has formed in us.
This event was originally held to provide a bit of respite for those in grief. However, others wished to attend and the event was opened to all parishioners and guests. This has proven successful in meeting the needs of those in grief and providing a night of fun for the entire parish
The movies often have a them of redemption such as in: Captains Courageous, The Third Grader, A Smile as Big as the Moon, The Brothers, Henry Poole Was Here, and The Spitfire Girl. 'Movie Night' has proven to be successful in building our parish community, a comfort to those in grief, and an enjoyable evening for all!

After a lifetime of dreaming about traveling the world, 78-year-old homebody Carl flies away on an unbelievable adventure with Russell, an 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer, unexpectedly in tow.
UP is uplifting. This family action adventure comedy has it all and is a movie that truly any age will enjoy. Who would have thought that an animated movie about a 78 year old man could be so entertaining. Ed Asner is perfect as Carl Fredricksen, an elderly man that laments about not fulfilling this life long dream about travel, a dream that he and his wife Ellie had dreamed about from early childhood. This movie starts out cute but quickly becomes heartwarming, sentimental and a little sad, then just like the morning clouds that burn off when the sun comes out this movie turns and you know there is a great happy adventure ahead.
