Episode Summary

Scenes From a Parish

Scenes From a Parish is an independent film that explores ethnic tensions, poverty, and the role of the church in creating a home for all people. St. Patrick's Parish in Lawrence, Massachusetts is one of the poorest areas in the United States, as the companies that ones thrived here on immigrant labor have moved overseas. Now new waves of immigrants are settling into an aging area and the church brings peace to mixed cultures.
