RADICAL DISCIPLE: THE STORY OF FATHER PFLEGER
Michael Pleger, longtime pastor of Chicago’s St. Sabina parish, has consistently used the power of his pulpit to battle social inequity, engaging in high profile campaigns to end drug-dealing, prostitution and exploitation of liquor and tobacco companies. This award-winning film captures the charisma of the crusading priest and his controversial ‘gospel of the streets’. We are pleased to have Father Pfleger; the film’s Producer/Director, Bob Hercules, and Bob McClory, author of the book “Radical Disciple,” join us for a discussion following the film.
