Many moons ago I shared with you the news that Leonardo Defilippis of St. Luke Productions was in the process of writing a screen play on the life of the Servant of God Father Augustus Tolton. The screen play was finished some time ago and Mr. Defilippis spent several months searching for the just the write actor to portray Quincy's first citizen. That man has now been found, Andrae Goodnight. Now, at long last, the one-man play Tolton: From Slave to Priest is ready for performance!
St. Luke Productions has released a short teaser trailer:
His Excellency the Most Reverend Thomas John Paprocki, Bishop of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois, has asked me to work on bringing this performance to central Illinois, which I will be most happy to do. I will keep you updated as to when and where you will be able to see this drama, as well as how you might be able to help bring Mr. Goodnight to our diocese.
If you wish to bring the play to your area, you can do so here.
Please keep this play, and all of the excellent work of St. Luke Productions, in your prayers.
