Yesterday, April 25, Alistair Burns previewed Father Edward Evanko's upcoming performance about Blessed Nykyta Budka. Today on The B.C. Catholic website, I preview Father Evanko's upcoming one man show about St. Damien:
St. Damien of Molokai contracted leprosy after serving a leper colony on that Hawaiian island. A former actor, now a Catholic priest, is going to pay homage to the saint once again with his one-man show.

Ukrainian Catholic priest Father Edward Evanko will perform Damien at St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Agassiz May 10.

Father Evanko, who's performed the play worldwide, thought he was out of show business for good after his ordination in 2005, but an act of charity pulled him back in.
