Special thanks to Pigasus Pictures, John Armstrong, and Zachary Spicer.The Good Catholic All screenings of The Good Catholic will take place at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. Daniel (Zachary Spicer) is a young, idealistic priest who loves his work more than anything. While he struggles to find balance between the dueling philosophies of his mentors, Father Victor (Danny Glover), an old school, no nonsense traditionalist, and Father Ollie (John C. McGinley), a chain-smoking, carb-addicted Franciscan, Daniel’s passion for his calling never waivers … until he meets Jane. The complicated and mysterious Jane (Wrenn Schmidt) introduces Daniel to an entirely different set of possibilities. As new bonds form and old ones are tested, Daniel must decide what his true calling really is, and whether he has the courage to answer it.
