Immaculata University Hosts The Jeweler’s Shop
Immaculata University and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will co-host the Theophany Catholic Theatre Company in their performance of "The Jeweler´s Shop: A Meditation on the Sacrament of Matrimony, Passing on Occasion into a Drama," a three-act play about male/female relationships, love, and marriage.
The play, which centers around three couples, their relationships, and their encounters with Christ as they search for fulfillment and happiness, was written by Karol Wojtyla, better known as Pope John Paul II. The company is comprised of graduates of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in Washington, DC, and funds raised from the performances will help finance the apostolate.
On Friday, October 13, at 8:00 p.m. the performance will take place in Alumnae Hall Theater. No advance tickets will be necessary. The company wishes to make the Pope´s words accessible to all, and will not charge admission; however, free will donations will be accepted and are always appreciated, as they will help the mission.
