LINCOLN (SNR) — Why would intelligent, successful people give up careers, alienate friends, and cause havoc in their families… to become Catholic? This is the subject of the documentary, “Convinced.”
The documentary will be shown Thursday, June 30 at 7:30 p.m. in the Marcus Grand Theater, downtown Lincoln.
Tickets — $10 each — must be purchased in advance. They are available online at http://convinced-lincoln.weebly.com. For offline purchasing, contact Kristine Placek at 402-613-1294.
Placek, a teacher at St. John the Apostle School in Lincoln and a parishioner at St. Mary in Elmwood, learned about the documentary through her friend and Catholic author, Devin Rose, and arranged the screening through Tugg events.
The film features well-known Catholic evangelists like Scott Hahn and Abby Johnson.
Filmmaker Don Johnson — also an author, speaker and radio show host — spent more than 20 years in Protestant evangelistic work. He entered the Catholic Church in 2015.
As he was considering his own journey into the Church, Johnson traveled the country to interview dozens of articulate Catholic personalities, including Johnson, Rose and Hahn, as well as Jeff Cavins, Patrick Coffin, Leah Libresco, Patrick Madrid and many more, and share their stories.
A trailer is available online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlDPeZCHV8o.
After covering the cost of the event, any proceeds will be donated directly to Catholic Social Services.
