You are invited to a spectacular and dramatic presentation of scripture, light, and movement when Michael Reardon prayerfully and powerfully proclaims The Gospel of Mark, directed by Patrick Lane. This is a contemporary translation of scripture, proclaimed in the oral tradition of the early church, designed with music, lighting, and costuming.
The Gospel of Mark will be presented Friday, March 2, at 8:00pm at St. Ferdinand’s Catholic Church, located at 25 Main Street in Blanco.
Michael Reardon has memorized the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, as well as the Book of Revelation, and performs them dramatically worldwide. He is a native of Anaconda, Montana.
Patrick Lane, director, musician and lighting artist, has designed the special effects and written the original music, all of which is done live for each performance. He is a native of Morrill, Nebraska.
This blend of voice and light, music and costuming, honors the Word of God as a unique ministry of proclamation. They have given over 1000 performances in cities throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Republic of China, Europe, and Israel. In Rome, they performed at the Biblical Institute of the Gregorian University, and at the American Church of Santa Susanna, and in Vatican City at North American College. Their greatly acclaimed performance has also taken them to the cradle of Christianity: Jerusalem, Capernaum, Tiberias, Nazareth, and the towns along the shores of the Sea of Galilee.
The public is invited to attend, and to experience the power of the Word. A reception to meet the artists will follow the performance.
