This Week: Eighth Week in Ordinary Time
We are the Roman Catholic Faith Community of St. Philomena, called to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our celebrating and praying together, through our support of the faith development of each member and through our compassionate service and care for one another and the world. We do this because of our commitment to our faith, our hope in the reign of God and our love of God and neighbor.
Faustina: Messenger of Divine Mercy
Faustina: Messenger of Divine Mercy, the live theatrical one-woman drama performed by actress Maria Vargo and directed by Leonardo Defilippis of Saint Luke Productions, will be presented on Thursday, June 2 at 7:30 PM at St. Stephen the Martyr. Admission: $10 suggested minimum donation.
In Faustina: Messenger of Divine Mercy, audiences experience firsthand the spirit and life of Polish mystic Saint Faustina, whose personal encounters with Jesus have inspired a world-wide devotion to Christ’s Divine Mercy. A parallel modern story within the drama offers audiences a compelling personal connection to the current moral issues of our times. Audiences are calling the production a “wake-up call.” Faustina: Messenger of Divine Mercy is an inspiring dramatic portrayal not to be missed. The production runs ninety minutes, and is suitable for ages 13 and up. To learn more visit http://DivineMercyDrama.com.
Afterwards, the relics of St. Faustina and St. John Paul II will be presented for veneration.
