Vianney Production

Vianney Performance Thank You The Vianney performance was without a doubt an exceptional event. The audience consisted of visitors, children, and many parishioners. It was a top quality performance and a true life story about a parish priest who became the patron saint of all parish priests. It was performed here, in Freeport, on Vianney’s 200th anniversary of becoming a parish priest for Ars, France. It was very inspiring, soul wrenching, enlightening and totally on mark with current events.
Leonardo Defilippis did a Q&A after the event and he was very welcoming to this parish. He gave all he had for the performance. He and his stage manager were a true joy to work with.
There were many people and organizations that came forward after the sponsorship list had been printed for the program, and who aided in making this event possible. At this time, I wish to express my appreciation for their generous support in helping set-up and tear down, as well as, their sponsorship. There isn’t enough room to mention all of them, but I would like to take this moment to thank some of the sponsors: Attorneys Ed & John Mitchell, Randall J. Manus, Esquire, Mr. & Mrs. James Scholtz, in memory of Margret Scholtz, Professor Joseph Vu, Luke Beggin of BTL Capital Management, and the Marian Society. You helped God touch many souls that night.
Through your act of kindness and financial support, others have benefited by your good heart and giving nature. The graces that flow into the community will mostly be unseen. But God always rewards those who serve Him. May the angels of God always assist you!
We thank you for your loving support. You are in my prayers. ~ Cynthia Saar, Event Coordinator
