Upcoming Events @ Mother Knoll

Friday, September 18 International Film Festival Maryknoll presents the next film in the on-going series: Life through Death: Change, Suffering and Living into More Abundant Life.

Tonight's show: Eat Drink Man Woman.

7:30 p.m. in the Asia Room

Open to the public, free of charge.

Introduction by a Maryknoller (Usually Fr. Larry Lewis) and discussion to follow.

Saturday, September 19th Celebration marking Fr. Mike Duggan's 50 Anniversary of Ordination Special Mass at 11 a.m. in Queen of Apostles chapel followed by an outdoor luncheon in the Quadrangle. By invitation only.

Sunday, September 20th No special events (other than 9 a.m. Sunday Mass) at the Knoll, but it marks the last day of the San Gennero festival in Little Italy. That's a good time to go, because vendors give last-minute discounts to move there merchandise. So if you can tell a calzone from a cannoli, get your butt down to Mulberry Street. Of course, if the blood of San Gennero failed to liquify Saturday (his feast) than all Napolitani are expected to drink the Kool Aid like proper paesani.

Tuesday, September 22 A special trip to the C.I.A. (Calm down, it's the Culinary Institute of America) for fixed-price lunch for those who pre-registered (in the dining room). The French restaurant is already full, so guys registering late choose between the Italian and American restaurants. Departing from the back parking lot at 10:30 a.m. and returning by 2:30 p.m.

Thursday, September 24 A preemptive Chusok (Korean Harvest) Festival from noon to 2 p.m., featuring authentic Korean foods (Yes, of course there will be kimchi—and pulgogi!), music, singing and decorations. Many of the veteran Korean Maryknollers (Fathers & Sisters) will be dressed up in their traditional Korean costume 한복 (pronounced "Han Bok"). Raffles throughout the event will help keep people from running away early, despite the kimchi. You must be present to win!
