Host an evening that will inspire and transform the lives of your parishioners.
Let Outside da Box (OdB) facilitate an evening of reflection based on its critically acclaimed film Full of Grace. As part of OdB’s mission we are offering this evening for a minimal cost. We only ask your parish provide two things: cover the transportation, food, and lodging expenses for an OdB team member and do a fantastic job promoting the event in your parish.
Use the Evening of Reflection for:
- Lent or Advent
- Religious Education Kick-off
- Year of Mercy Event
- A (mini) mission
- Whole family catechetical event

ABOUT THE FILM
Full of Grace tells the story of the Blessed Mother’s final days on earth. Surrounded by Peter and the remaining Apostles, she recounts the beauty and mystery of her experiences with her Son. During her last earthly days, she helps the early Church regain their original encounter with the Lord.
WHAT MAKES FULL OF GRACE DIFFERENT?
Full of Grace is a new genre of film. It is intentionally paced in a manner that draws the viewer into deep spiritual reflection. It takes what we know through scripture and tradition and artfully tells a story with great depth and insight. It causes viewers not only to reflect on the struggles of the characters in the film, but also to ponder their own personal walk with Christ.
HELP US SHARE THE MISSION OF OUTSIDE DA BOX
At the end of the evening we will ask the participants for a good will offering to support the continued
work and mission of Outside da Box. We will also have copies of Full of Grace for sale along with other OdB related merchandise.
