Christendom College to Host Live Drama “Faustina”

March 10, 2016

faustina-2016Christendom College will host a special performance of St. Luke Productions’ Faustina: Messenger of Divine Mercy on Friday, April 1 – just two days before Divine Mercy Sunday. Beginning at 7:00 p.m. in Crusader Gymnasium, the timely event is open to the public for $5 a person or $25 a family.

Faustina, a live drama concerning the life of Polish mystic St. Faustina, is being embraced and acclaimed by audiences across the United States, who are calling the production a “wake-up call.” In the production, audiences experience firsthand the spirit and life of St. 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.

Faustina, which is in the midst of a national tour, stars actress Maria Vargo and is directed by Leonardo Defilippis. Vargo is a Hollywood-based actress with a wealth of experience in film, television, and theater, in addition to her work as an artistic director and producer. Defilippis is well known in Catholic circles for his one-man stage productions Maximilian: Saint of Auschwitz and Vianney, which have been re-aired on EWTN, and for directing the acclaimed feature film Therese.

The production runs for ninety minutes, and is suitable for ages thirteen and up. For tickets and further information, please contact Brenda Seelbach at 540-636-2900 ext. 1211 or brenda.seelbach@christendom.edu.

All faculty and staff families, as well as current students, are invited and encouraged to attend the event, where they will receive their free tickets upon arrival.
