250 churches throughout province planning to host special family movie event

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 9, 2009) -

Editors note: A photo for this release is available on Marketwire's website.

This Easter weekend, there will be plenty of Easteriffic! fun and surprises for families all across Quebec.

More than 250 Christian churches from a wide variety of denominations throughout the province will be hosting Easteriffic! - a movie and carnival-like event that shares the meaning of Easter in a fresh and exciting way for families with children ages 3 through 12.

It's a celebration that families won't want to miss!

Each participating church will be offering something interesting, fun and FREE, including games, face painting, Easter egg hunts, live music, mazes, snacks, gifts, and more. All participating churches will also play host to the Quebec premiere of what promises to be a family classic: Rez - The Rock that Rolled, from the internationally acclaimed and award-winning God Rocks! ® children's television series.

Rez - the Rock that Rolled is the story of a lonely rock named Tombstone and of Gracie, the tiny sparrow who becomes his friend. Together, they bring the Easter miracle to life.
