Mark’s Gospel comes alive

Fr. Morris brings one-character dramatization to Immaculate Conception March 21

Fr. Joseph Morris will bring his one-character dramatization of the Gospe of Mark, known as “Mark’s Gospel LIVE” to Immaculate Conception Church in Morris on March 21.

On March 21, at 7 p.m., all are invited and encouraged to experience the entire Gospel of Mark in two amazing hours of awesome storytelling by priest and actor, Fr. Joseph Morris.

This is not a reading or a talk, but is a dynamic proclamation of an ancient story about God’s healing love.  The performance has been described by the audience as “mesmerizing,” “powerful,” and “a profound experience.”

Since 2002, Fr. Morris has given hundreds of performances all over the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada in churches of many denominations.

While recovering from a broken leg, Fr. Morris memorized the entire Gospel of Mark and has since brought it to life in a one-character dramatization.
