Charity Fundraiser: Passion of the Christ

The St Joseph Conference of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul will culminate their fund raiser with  a screening of the Mel Gibson film The Passion of The Christ on Good Friday, April 19, at the Alcazar Theatre in Carpinteria. 

Filmed on location in Italy, The Passion of the Christ received three Academy Award nominations in 2005 for Best Achievement in Cinematography,  Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Score and for Best Achievement in Makeup; as well as 29 other awards and 21 other nominations.

For added authenticity, Director Mel Gibson insisted the dialogue should be entirely in reconstructed Aramaic (Jewish dialect), Hebrew, and Latin; with English subtitles. The film grossed $612 million worldwide and was the 9th highest grossing film domestically at the end of its theatrical run.

The St. Joseph Conference of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is dedicated to helping the poor and disadvantaged in the Carpinteria spiritually as well as financially when they need help to pay rent, to  pay utilities, buy food or other necessities.
