Garden Grove, CA—For the first time in modern history, the Catholic Church and the arts are coming together in a unique collaboration that will bring the faith to life in a dramatic way.
The Christ Cathedral Drama Series, which opens in August of this year at the Freed Performing Arts Center in Orange, CA, is a creative partnership between Saint Luke Productions, which for 35 years has been dedicated to renewing the culture through theater and the media, and the Diocese of Orange, CA, one of the largest in the U.S., with more than 1.2 million Catholics.
We just got this letter that I have to share with you. It's very personal, so Theresa's name has been changed to protect her privacy:
On a warm evening in March, some friends invited my husband and me to a performance of Faustina: Messenger of Divine Mercy at St. Mark's Church in The Villages, Florida. Little did I know that this performance would heal a painful chapter of my life.
In the darkened church, my eyes rested on the beautiful Sister Faustina (Maria Vargo). The performance was spectacular, and I was immediately intrigued by Faustina's strength and determination.
Has playing St. Thérèse changed you?
Absolutely! This role has brought me closer to Christ – I feel Him at work in my life in a way that I have not experienced before. I have to ask myself daily, "Am I living up to the example that Thérèse set?" I really feel I have a friend in Heaven watching out for me.
"You have convinced me!"
That's what one boy told Leonardo after a Vianney performance at the Quo Vadis vocation retreat in Oregon. Through the Holy Spirit and the example of St. John Vianney, that young man was sure of his call to the priesthood.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there could be a deluge of vocations from this group of boys? Why not ask God for a 100% response?
Be bold with us at Saint Luke Productions! Ask God to shower graces upon these boys and to multiply the number of vocations a hundredfold!
