July 13 - Powers and Dominions   55 min
In all of God's creation we see such splendor and beauty, mystery and wonder. Within this creation there are beings with intellect and free will: humans and angels. From the creation of the world, the realm of the angels and the world of men have interacted. This interaction is not always a positive one. This film explores the spiritual world, that very real but unseen realm: God, the human soul, angels, demons (fallen angels), spiritual warfare, the reality of demonic possession and exorcism, the dangers of the new age movement and the occult, and much more.
 
July 13 - Ocean of Mercy  1 hr 15 min
At the dawn of the twentieth century, three voices rose up from Poland to proclaim an urgent message, a message powerful enough to alter the course of an age plunging into spiritual darkness. Filmed on location in more than twenty cities across Poland and the United States, this true story examines and chronicles the phenomenal lives and spiritual legacy of St. Faustina Kowalksa, St. Maximilian Kolbe, and Pope St. John Paul II, modern day "Apostles of Mercy."

Update: Fr. Tom's New Contact Information

Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Within the last week or so some of you may have received an e-mail from Fr. Tom's St. Clare e-mail address asking for money.  It has come to our attention that Fr. Tom's old St. Clare e-mail address was "hacked" and Fr. Tom did NOT send this e-mail.  If this e-mail was sent to you, please do not reply and please do not send money. 
We would like to provide you with new contact information for Fr. Tom as he has transitioned on to St. Andrew Parish in Rochester Hills.  Please see below.
