Permission the Film – Crowdfunding and Casting Call

On February 10th and 11th, Kevin Dunn, director of the film Permission – Fr. Bob Bedard’s Vision for the Church, will be at Mass to speak about the film’s crowdfunding campaign and casting call. Permission is the full-length documentary exploring the life of Fr. Bob Bedard, founder of the Companions of the Cross and former pastor of St. Mary’s Parish. There are many ways for parishioners to support the film, including becoming extras for some of the scenes, donating to the crowdfunding campaign, and praying for the success of the project.
