Aug. 17 in Fonda
Biblical Drama to Highlight
SFO Day at Kateri Shrine

FONDA, NY, May 26, 2008 -- The annual Secular Franciscan Pilgrimage at Bl. Kateri Tekakwitha National Shrine in Fonda on Sunday, Aug. 17, will feature a dramatic presentation by Act 4 Him, a husband-and-wife traveling ministry.

The drama, titled “John, the Beloved Disciple,” will immediately follow 10:30 a.m. Mass.

Secular Franciscans are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy fellowship following the presentation, and then explore the shrine facilities and grounds in the afternoon.

The presentation will relate the death and resurrection of Jesus as told through John’s eyes.

“Our mission is simple: help people develop a deeper understanding of the Bible and most importantly guide them to a closer relationship and a decision for Christ,” note Matthew and Tina Zawisza on their website,

“We believe without a doubt that the Bible is a Christian’s guidebook in life…BUT for many people it is ‘a book’ that is difficult to understand. Which is why many people do not read it. Our mission therefore is to make the Bible easier for people to understand and enjoy by breathing life into it.”

Act 4 Him is based in Schenectady, NY.
