Tolton Drama - Keep Praying
Many of you have asked about the progress of our Tolton production. We had high hopes that we had found the actor to play Father Augustus Tolton, the first African-American priest, but it didn’t work out. So the search continues.
Father Tolton didn’t give up. So neither will we.
From a young age, Augustus Tolton knew he was called to the priesthood, but no seminary in the United States would take him because of the color of his skin. Finally, after years of delay and struggle, he was accepted into the seminary – not in the U.S., but in Rome.
Father Tolton’s story is crucial for our country at this time of racial and moral division. Please pray for his canonization (his cause has been sent to Rome) and for our search for the faith-filled actor to play the role of Father Augustus Tolton in our upcoming live production.
