The Welcome Project to screen “Angels and Saints-Eros and Awe”


Sex. Gender. Religion. Why are they so hard to talk about? What do they have in common?

A multi-award-winning documentary called “Angels and Saints-Eros and Awe” has some of those answers. LifeDream Films and The Welcome Project PA have partnered to bring viewers this new documentary film that explores the relationship between sex and spirituality in the quest for wholeness at The Welcome Project PA, 350 S. York Road, Hatboro, on Jan. 27.

Those who shared their perspective in the film on the topic of eros and spirituality include leading clergy, sex educators and therapists, and workshop leaders all around the gender and sexuality matrix. Each of these “messengers of wholeness” brings to the screen their heartfelt and sometimes hard-earned wisdom. That is why they are called “Angels and Saints.”

The film has met with rave reviews as it has been screened at various faith communities, professional conferences, seminaries and for the general public.

This is what some participants at the Conference for Contemporary Relationships in Austin, Texas in 2022 had to say after viewing “Angels and Saints-Eros and Awe.”

“Where was this film when I was 14?’ “This film will save lives.”

Join in for an evening of entertainment and education, live music and refreshments from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Jan. 27. Music begins at 6:30 p.m.; the program starts at 7 p.m. At 8 p.m., there will be a panel Q&A discussion with the filmmakers and team.

The Welcome Project offers LGBTQIA+ programs, mental health services, interfaith cooperation, and immigration justice services.

LifeDream Films incorporates the talent and heart felt expression of filmmakers Vic Compher and Rodney Whittenberg.
