Before our Confirmation class started this morning, one of the other leaders informed me that Bella started playing in one of our local theaters this weekend!

Why not go see Bella this weekend, encourage others to go, or bring new people to see it with you for a second time? Yes I am still in “Bella mode,” trying to help promote the film.
