The Confessions of St. Augustine
Oct

7:00 PM19:00

The Confessions of St. Augustine

Free Will Offering | Suggested $15 Adults, $7 Children

In this play about St. Augustine of Hippo, audiences have a personal encounter with one of the most influential saints in Christian history. Actor Leonardo Defilippis has edited and shaped the spiritual classic, The Confessions of Saint Augustine into a riveting dramatic experience. “As I explored this text, I discovered a completely modern story about a man absorbed in a decadent existence of sexual indulgence and intellectual arrogance,” explains Defilippis. “The play is about his early life with his mistress and his dramatic conversion to Christianity. Because of the emotional ground covered by the story, I knew it would make a terrific Catholic theater piece. I found that Augustine revealed something very personal that our modern world could relate to. The Confessions of Saint Augustine needs not only to be read, but to be experienced in a face-to-face encounter.”

The Confessions of Saint Augustine was directed by Leonardo’s wife, actress and screenplay writer Patti Defilippis. “People think of saints as perfect - not human, like the rest of us,” she says. “But Augustine expresses what we all feel: a passionate desire for something that can’t be satisfied by materialism or sex.  The story of Augustine is poignant and cathartic. It thoroughly examines an admitted emptiness that eventually recognizes one’s longing for the presence of God within one’s soul. His famous line is ‘My heart is restless until it rests in you.’”

80 minutes. Suitable for ages 12 and up.

Feast of St. Anne
Jul
26
7:00 PM19:00

Feast of St. Anne

THE FEAST OF ST. ANNE, THE MOTHER OF OUR LADY, will be celebrated according to the Dominican Rite on Thursday, July 26, at 7:00 PM. Cantores in Ecclesia will sing Claudio Monteverdi’s Missa ‘In illo tempore’ (1610) and the Gregorian Chant Proper.

According to the apocryphal Protevangelium of James, SAINT ANNE was the wife of Joachim, both of whom were desolate because of their childlessness. One day while St. Anne was praying, an angel appeared to her and told her she would have a child, and St. Anne promised to dedicate the child to God. The child was Mary, mother of Jesus. The devotion to St. Anne is founded on the bond which unites her to Mary and to the Incarnate Word. Its ancient liturgy dates from the sixth century in the East and the eighth century in the West. It was authorized by Urban IV in 1378. In 1584 Gregory fixed July 26 as the date of the feast, and Leo extended it to the whole Church in 1879.
