Vianney, a one-man drama by Leonardo Defilippis will be performed here at Grotto on Sunday, October 4th at 2:30 p.m. in the gym. This is the story of a priest struggling in a small town in France following the French Revolution, when God was seemingly forgotten. It will inspire and give hope for our time. That priest was the Cure of Ars, named the Patron Saint of parish priests; St. John Vianney. All our welcome to attend. There is no charge but a free will offering will be appreciated.
