Banners at McNeese Offers Free Documentary Screening

A free documentary screening, “A Celtic Pilgrimage With John O’Donohue,” will be presented featuring the inspirational Irish poet, philosopher and theologian, John O’Donohue,  at 3 p.m. on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, in Stokes Auditorium of Hardtner Hall as part of the 2019 Banners at McNeese State University Cultural Season.

The late John O’ Donohue was born into the majestic windswept landscape of County Clare, western Ireland. As a student of literature, poetry, philosophy and theology, O’Donohue developed a lifelong reverence for nature, mysticism and creativity. After 20 years committed to serving in the Catholic church, he left the priesthood to continue his work spreading messages of passion, divinity, creativity and the power of the human mind and heart.

His writing led him to be a sought-after teacher, best-selling author, internationally acclaimed orator and esteemed advocate for social justice. This intimate cinematic portrait will be followed by a spirited discussion about the Celtic imagination and its interweavings with O’Donohue and his legacy.
