Championing Religious Freedom in the Public Square - A Catholic's Duty presented by Rev. Dr. Andrew P.W. Bennett

“We see increasing pressures on the exercise of religious freedom…We see it being confused or equated with freedom of speech or freedom of assembly rather than as a foundational freedom that informs our free speech and encourages our free and public assemblies. We see it confused with a constrained freedom to worship”: Rev. Dr. Andrew P. W. Bennett

Presented in partnership with Thomas More Lawyers' Guild of Toronto.

The Rev. Dr. Andrew P.W. Bennett is Program Director for Cardus Law.

The Rescue: The Story of Jose Arturo Castellanos -- The Latin American Wallenberg

Event Date: 
Tuesday, June 12, 2018 - 7:30pm

"The Rescue" - A Live Film-Concerto – highlights the life of Colonel Jose Castellannos, recognized by
Yad Vashem as a Righteous Diplomat.

Col. Castellanos, based in Geneva during WW II, disapproved of the dictatorship in his own country, El Salvador, and of Nazi fascism. He issued Salvadoran citizenship documents which saved the lives of over ten thousand Jews.

The Film-Concerto is a celebration - a story of hope, friendship and courage in the face of injustice and a
window into the life of a true hero and rescuer with the backdrop of live music performed and directed by
his grandsons Alvaro and Boris Castellanos. This has captivated audiences of all ages in Chile, Argentina,
Panama, Germany, USA, China and other countries.

At the core of this drama lie the message and the conviction that no matter how small or flawed we may feel, each one of us has the ability to make positive change in the world.

Free Parking

Tickets $20.00 - Purchase tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/the-rescue-tickets-45514350648
