Actors Collaborative Toledo: The Testament of Mary

Imagine the most iconic mother of all time telling her own version of a story we thought we knew. Colm Tóibín’s retelling of the pivotal events in the life of Jesus Christ through the eyes of Mary the survivor challenges us to imagine the suffering, courage and strength of mothers up close and personal. This is an intimate session with a strong but vulnerable woman who has an extraordinary story to tell and tells it frankly. Join a gifted playwright and performer in a solo journey that will leave you with new insight and questions, along with a deeper appreciation for human endurance in the context of mystery.

Reception begins at 7:00pm; curtain is at 8:00pm. All proceeds from this event will assist in the purchase and installation of the bronze sculpture "Homeless Jesus" at Trinity Episcopal Church.

Directed by Jeffrey Albright and featuring Barbara Barkan. Tickets are available at https://www.act419.org/

Easter

Easter

Jesus embodied God’s love so completely that he was hung on a cross for refusing to compromise or set limits on that love. Today we proclaim that death was not the last word for him. Easter promises that, like those first disciples, we too can know this risen Lord and can find our lives being filled with his spirit.

In a world of fake, the hope of Jesus is real. This is not simply about an event centuries ago, but about how the miracle of resurrection can take place in us. Easter changes everything - come celebrate!

Maundy Thursday: A Feast of Friends

Masterworks Chorale Concert: Verleih uns Frieden

When we are open-hearted, our diversity can enrich our society, but when we falter, it can lead to a fractured community. At all times in human history we have struggled to establish the true community we desire, and so throughout the centuries music has expressed a need for peace. Masterworks Chorale, a mixed voice ensemble of Toledo area singers, will present Mendelssohn’s Verleih uns Frieden (Grant us peace), settings of Laetatus sum (Psalm 121) by Victoria, Mozart, and Monteverdi, and settings of the Hebrew texts Hine ma tov (Behold how good, from Psalm 133) and Sim shalom (Grant peace).
