LAND TRUST OF VIRGINIA AND GOOSE CREEK ASSOCIATION PRESENT: SAVING GRACE, SAVING PLACE AT THE HILL SCHOOL JANUARY 27, 2017
Contact: Kerry Roszel 540-687-8441
Event: The Land Trust of Virginia, in conjunction with the Goose Creek Association and Blue Ridge Wildlife Center, will host a free screening of Saving Grace, Saving Place, a documentary chronicling the story of a Trappist monastery’s struggle for reformation of their home by embracing an intense sustainability initiative. Witness the monks’ land stewardship, prayer, and work ethic as the core of the community at Holy Cross Abbey. It’s a race against time to retain their rural home along the iconic Shenandoah River in the shadow of The Blue Ridge Mountains.
Ecology meets theology. Saving Place, Saving Grace portrays an extraordinary place and grace in the spirit of contemplative prayer and lifestyle that is the soul of Cool Spring. And—without the active engagement of the internal and external communities—this 1,200-acre property and community could disappear.

Time: 6:00pm Animal Ambassadors from Blue Ridge Wildlife will be on hand for a meet and greet before the film begins.
