St. Faustina drama at two diocesan parishes

Performing artist Nancy Scimone will present her one-woman drama "St. Faustina - Messenger of Mercy," March 3 at Holy Spirit Church in Annandale, and March 13 at Holy Family Church in Dale City.

The play is based on excerpts from the saint's diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul.

Scimone has staged more than 100 performances of the drama throughout the United States, including the John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington, the Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Mass., and Holy Rosary Church in Baltimore, the site of the miracle leading to Sister Faustina's canonization.
