General Announcements

One-actor play about St. Damien de Veuster is Nov. 15 at Saint Meinrad

The American Showcase Theater Company will present Aldyth Morris’ one-actor play titled Damien at 7 p.m. on Nov. 15 in the Gallery of St. Gregory Hall at Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology in St. Meinrad.

St. Damien de Veuster was born in Belgium in 1840.

Ordained as a member of a missionary order, the priest traveled to Hawaii in 1864 and later began a life of ministry to the lepers on the island of Molokai.

St. Damien eventually contracted leprosy and died in 1889. On Oct. 11, 2009, Pope Benedict XVI declared him to be a saint.

Actor Reid Sasser, who portrays Damien, first performed this production in 1984 in Washington, D.C. Using the technique of flashback, Sasser recounts Damien’s life at his funeral.

The program is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Guest House and student parking lots. For more information, call 812-357-6501.
