We invite you to join us at the performance of Tolton: From Slave to Priest, an original one-man live drama performed by actor Jim Coleman and produced by Saint Luke Productions. This professional production will be presented at Brophy College Preparatory on Tuesday, January 15, 7 p.m., Black Box Theater; coordinated by Dr. Matthew Whitaker and Brophy’s Office of Equity and Inclusion. In Tolton, audiences encounter firsthand the life and message of Fr. Augustus Tolton, the first African American Catholic priest. Born a slave, ordained a priest in Rome, and sent to minister in Chicago, Fr. Tolton faced prejudice throughout his life. However, he also saw that the Catholic Church was the antidote to the discrimination he experienced. “It was the priests of the Church who taught me to pray and to forgive my persecutors,” he said. “We should welcome all people into the Church, not send them away.” Fr. Tolton’s compelling story of courage and reconciliation resonates deeply with modern American audiences. Bishop Joseph Perry of Chicago, postulator for Fr. Tolton’s canonization cause, is calling Tolton a production that will “inspire a new era of peace, hope, and forgiveness in America.” Tolton: From Slave to Priest is a perfect opportunity for our communities to come together. We are very fortunate to have this caliber of theater at our parish, and I hope that you will join us for this inspiring event. If you have any questions or would like a flyer or poster to help promote this event, please contact Dr. Matthew Whitaker, Ph.D., Director, Office of Equity and Inclusion at firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission: Free-Will Offering TRAILER – Video URL https://youtu.be/4vd3TGM94mE 75 minutes / Recommended for ages 10 & up.
