Event description

Description

"A colored child born April 1, 1854, son of Peter Tolton and Martha Chisley, property of Stephen Elliott."

Those were the only words written in the baptismal record for Father Augustus Tolton. Born a slave to Peter Paul and Martha Tolton, of Brush Creek, Missouri, he grew up to become the first African American Catholic priest, bearing the insults of racial prejudice, and suffering the jealousies of many religious leaders who saw him as a threat to their congregations. Tolton: From Salve to Priest, a new drama from St. Luke Productions, is the inspiring true story of a man led to undertake and accomplish extraordinary things in the name of God. Tolton is sure to have a powerful impact on all who experience it!

The performance runs 75 minutes, and is suitable for ages 10+. For more information, please contact Michael Garibaldi at 623-935-2151 x229
