An acclaimed stage play charting the incredible story of the first African American priest, Father Augustus Tolton (1854 - 1897), comes to the Diocese of Lansing this month.
"His story is amazing and inspiring, and we need to hear it," says Saint Luke Productions, creators of "Tolton: From Slave to Priest".
"Tolton will have a powerful impact of healing in our country and all over the world, drawing ALL people to the truth of Jesus Christ."
The title role is played by actor Jim Coleman. The creator of the play is director Leonardo Defilippis. The Diocese of Lansing tour is sponsored and subsidized by the Notre Dame Federal Credit Union.
