St. Peter Catholic Church of Covington will present a special outdoor showing of the adoption documentary I Lived on Parker Avenue on Sunday, Nov. 11. The film will be shown in the pavilion of St. Peter School in Covington beginning at 6:15 p.m. and will be moderated by Susan Scotton (the mother in the film) and Producer Benjamin Clapper.
The address of St. Peter School is E. Temperance St., and the pavilion is located one block behind on S. Thread St. between E. Temperance St. and E. 20th Ave.
I Lived on Parker Avenue documents LSU law school student David Scotton’s journey to meet his birth parents for the first time and also shares the story of David’s birth mother, Melissa Coles, as she recounts her visit to an Indianapolis abortion facility when she was pregnant with David.
The documentary, produced by Joie De Vivre Media, was released on March 8 and was featured on Fox and Friends earlier this year. The film has already been viewed by thousands across the country.
I Lived on Parker Avenue powerfully promotes adoption as a life-giving alternative to abortion. Unfortunately, there are only two adoptions for every 100 abortions performed in the United States, showing us that adoption efforts need more support.
In case of rain, the event will take place in St. Mary’s Hall at St. Peter Church.
