"Tolton" Play comes to the Diocese of Sacramento

In June we began a journey by kicking off the anti-racism initiative based on the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops Pastoral Letter against Racism called, Open Wide Our Hearts. The letter is a powerful invitation for all the people of God to "face courageously the vice of racism."

As our diocese continues to reflect on Open Wide Our Hearts, we invite you to attend Tolton: From Slave to Priest, which tells the heroic story of Venerable Fr. Augustus Tolton, the first African American Catholic priest.

The play is a powerful multi-media live production, filled with music, drama and inspiring performances. It brings a message of hope and healing for the wounds that plague our culture.

The play is suitable for ages 10 & up and will be showing from September 22nd-September 26th throughout different locations in the Diocese of Sacramento.
