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 mwhitaker@brophyprep.org.  Admission: Free-Will Offering  TRAILER – Video URL  https://youtu.be/4vd3TGM94mE  75 minutes / Recommended for ages 10 & up.

IN CASE YOU WANTED TO KNOWDELTA IV HEAVY TO LAUNCH NROL-71; Rocket: Delta IV Heavy; Mission: NROL-71; Launch Date: TONIGHT – Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2018; Launch Time: 5:57 p.m. PST; Launch Broadcast: Live commentary will begin at 5:37 p.m. PST Launch Location: Space Launch Complex 6, Vandenberg Air Force Base, California

The launch is scheduled and countdown currently continues for a “Delta IV Heavy” rocket at 6:57 PM Phoenix time.  You can watch a simulcast of the launch at https://www.ulalaunch.com/missions/delta-iv-nrol-71  so you’ll know if it is still on or not.  It is said that the Delta IV Heavy has the most fire and sound of anything that is working.  This is a really big rocket.  The last couple of recent launches out of Vandenberg have been visible in some regard from Phoenix, and tonight, conditions should be right at that particular time for the rocket to pass through sunlight which would illuminate the contrail and make it visible.  Several launches have been memorable experiences to catch any glimpse at all.  Set a calendar reminder and look westward and good luck!  AGAIN, no guarantees that the launch will take place this evening, and no guarantees that there will be anything visible from the Phoenix area, but it can’t hurt to look.

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 mwhitaker@brophyprep.org.  Admission: Free-Will Offering  TRAILER – Video URL  https://youtu.be/4vd3TGM94mE  75 minutes / Recommended for ages 10 & up.

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 mwhitaker@brophyprep.org.  Admission: Free-Will Offering  TRAILER – Video URL  https://youtu.be/4vd3TGM94mE  75 minutes / Recommended for ages 10 & up.
