A Final Salutation

Dear Friend,

This final note comes to thank the hundreds and hundreds who have visited this site over the past weeks and to thank Clayton Emmer. He has tried to teach and old dog new tricks on the IPod. Without his competence and patience this site and my reflections could not have come to you.

The last entry indicated that the closing Mass for World Youth Day was on August 2. That is clearly a mistake on my part. The date for the closing Mass was August 21.

In closing I would like to let you know a bit about Family Theater Productions in Hollywood. It is where I work Monday through Friday and some weekends. You can get the skinny on Family Theater by visiting our website: www.familytheater.org.

The most interesting current news at Family Theater is the phenomenal growth of the Angelus Awards, our international student film festival. When I returned from World Youth Day I leaned that we had received 720 entries from around the world for this year's competition. We plan to podcast from the Finalists' luncheon on September 23 when we will announce the winning films in the presence of all the finalists who are able to come to Hollywood. We will also podcast from the Angelus Awards ceremony itself at the Directors Guild of America in Hollywood. This is a big event with a packed theater for the screening of the winning films and presentation of awards. Always an exciting evening.

I plan to keep blogging in the coming weeks so I invite to stay tuned for Catholic Hollywood news from Family Theater Productions in Hollywood. Remember, "The family that prays together stays together."

God bless,

Fr. Willy
