In an effort to provide assistance to local homeless and offer a faith-building opportunity for individuals and families, the Parish of the Precious Blood will welcome Emmy-nominated actor Frank Runyeon for a three-day event entitled “A Journey to Joy!” and all are invited to participate.
Runyeon has appeared in over 100 television shows, including “Santa Barbara,” “General Hospital,” “All My Children,” The Young and the Restless,” “As the World Turns,” “Falcon Crest,” “L.A. Law,” and “Melrose Place.” For more than 25 years, he has performed the Gospel for hundreds of thousands of people in almost every state in America, earning rave reviews from critics, scholars, and Church leaders. “A Journey to Joy!” will feature a different theme each evening:
Friday, May 5 Holy Rosary Church, 34 Vaughn Street, Caribou 7 p.m. Theme – Luke: Stories on the Road
Saturday, May 6 Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, 333 Main Street, Presque Isle 7 p.m. Theme – Sermon on the Mount
Sunday, May 7 Holy Rosary Church, 34 Vaughn Street, Caribou 6 p.m. Theme – Hollywood vs. Faith
Admission is $10 per person, $15 per couple, or $20 per family, with all proceeds benefitting a crucial cause.
“Our goal is to offer a mission focused on dramatizing the Scriptures while raising funds for our ministry to the homeless,” said Janet Beckwith, pastoral life coordinator for the Parish of the Precious Blood. “We have been providing assistance with lodging throughout the winter for individuals, couples, and families until they can obtain a housing voucher. It adds up rather quickly.”
