Jesus the Healer – The Mystery Players – March 31, 2017

Friday March 31, 2017 – 8:00PM  St. Rose Church

“Jesus the Healer” written by Father Francis Pompei OFM, a Franciscan Friar from Holy Name Province, is a dramatic, multi-media presentation of the Passion and Death of the Lord and healing events in His life.

“Jesus the Healer” has no speaking parts. Through the use of special lighting, inspirational music, drama and soul-searching meditations, the play helps people get in touch with their goodness, struggles and sins. In a very unique way the play becomes a prayerful vehicle for the Lord’s spirit to forgive, renew and especially heal.
