Saint Philip Neri Church Hosting Live Performance of Maximilian, Saint of Auschwitz on October 22nd

Saint Philip of Neri Church in Lafayette Hill is hosting the live drama of Maximilian, Saint of Auschwitz on Wednesday, October 22nd at 7;30 p.m. The drama’s website describes the story of Saint Maximilian as follows:

In a dramatic one-man performance by Leonardo Defilippis, Maximilian opens with the young Raymond Kolbe, son of devout Polish parents, expressing his desire to be a priest. In spite of the trials he encounters as a seminarian, he is sustained in his journey to the priesthood by a vision from the Blessed Mother who offers him the choice between two crowns – one of purity or one of martyrdom. He boldly chooses both. This now sets the stage for the unfolding of the intense plot.

The performance is free. Below are a trailer and flyer:
