A group plans to attend the Dec. 9th showing at the Hermantown site. We will be leaving St. Jospeh’s at 3:45. We will have dinner in Duluth prior to the show at 7:00.

As many of you Chosen fans may have heard, a full-length Christmas episode will be shown nationwide in select theatres, prior to the release on the Chosen app. before Christmas.

The “Shepard,” a 20 min. short film, is now available on the Chosen app. It is fantastic! This film is what inspired the making of the Chosen series and is available as a pilot to the upcoming Christmas special.
