The bright lights of Hollywood came to the Christ Cathedral campus on May 7 as 300 invited guests enjoyed a red-carpet unveiling of the new film, Jesus Thirsts: The Miracle of the Eucharist, which will be in theaters nationwide June 4, 5 and 6.

Coinciding with the three-year national Eucharist Revival movement in the U.S., the documentary is being heralded by its producers and diocese leaders as a potentially life-changing film that comes at a time when millions have strayed from the Catholic Church.

“This can transform the face of the Earth – that’s how important this film is,” said executive producer Steve Greco, a permanent deacon and director of evangelization and formation for the Diocese of Orange who serves at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Irvine.

The 91-minute movie, co-sponsored by Deacon Steve’s Spirit Filled Hearts Ministry, which engages in evangelization and support of Catholic missions abroad, and the Diocese of Orange, hop-scotches around the world to such places as Poland, Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Uganda, Slovenia and Canada as prominent Catholic leaders offer insights and testimonies into the power of the Eucharist.

Parishes, dioceses and ministries in Orange County and throughout the country are being encouraged to show up for the U.S. screenings of the film, which is co-produced by James Wahlberg and Tim Moriarty.

Tickets are available through Fathom Events (, the entertainment content provider that broadcasts events in movie theaters.

And the screenings on June 6 will include subtitles in Spanish….
