“My Name is Joan” A Documentary

“My Name is Joan” A Documentary
Wednesday March 8th @ 6pm
Bethel Cinema

The story of Susan Drew, (known to many of us at the GAC) was born Joan Fagan to an unwed mother in the St. Patrick Mother and Baby Home in Dublin, Ireland in 1949.  While the documentary chronicles Susan’s journey to find her true identity, it also highlights the illegal exporting of children by the Catholic Church to families in other countries for profit while the Irish Government looked the other way.  The Irish Government still denies adopted children access to their information even though forced adoption affects at least a quarter of the Irish population. The screening is March 8 @ 6pm at The Bethel Cinema, 269 Greenwood Avenue, Bethel, CT. Tickets will be available at www.bethelcinema.com.
