The 82nd Seminary Tea brought out stylish hats and spring sunshine

Attendees at this year’s Seminary Tea sipped tea and nibbled on cucumber sandwiches (with the crust trimmed off, of course) with archbishops, bishops, priests and, most importantly, the seminarians who are benefited by the fundraiser. 

“These guys are the future,” Archbishop Alexander Sample told the crowd at the Portland Golf Club May 3 as he thanked them for their support. “They’re your future shepherds.”

NEW YORK (CNS) — There's a kernel of goodness at the heart of the mother-daughter comedy "Snatched" (Fox). But the minority of grown viewers for whom the film is acceptable will have to wade through a veritable cesspool of bad taste to approach it.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
NEW YORK (CNS) — Early on in "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" (Warner Bros.), the audience is treated to the sight of magically generated giant elephants swinging boulder-size wrecking balls at the ramparts of Camelot.
