If you missed Andrae Goodnight's inspiring and moving dramatic presentation of the life of the Servant of God Father Augustus Tolton, you still have a few opportunities to this excellent play from St. Luke Productions.

I cannot urge you enough to see this play.
One of those in attendance at the Quincy performance at November 12th sent a card to me saying, "We knew it would be good, but we were so blessed to witness more of Father Tolton's inner struggles and the amount of obstacles he faced, combined with his perseverance in faith."
Another person at the same performance also wrote to me, saying, "I just returned home from [Quincy University] and the Fr. Tolton production!! It was awesome, so glad I went."
Do yourself a favor and see this performance before Advent begins!
