"Be Still and Know" at Most Holy Redeemer CANCELLED
God Bless our good Archbishop!
From today's California Catholic Daily:
"San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer has ordered the cancellation of a play based on the controversial book The God Box that had been scheduled this weekend at Most Holy Redeemer parish.
'The parish has cancelled the play at the request of Archbishop George H. Niederauer,” said archdiocesan spokesman Maurice Healy in an email to California Catholic Daily. “Bishop William Justice, vicar for clergy, communicated this to the parish.'
Student actors from Sacred Heart Preparatory School in Atherton had been scheduled to perform the play, 'Be Still and Know,' on Sunday afternoon, March 8, at Most Holy Redeemer, which according to the parish bulletin, 'explores the subject of homosexuality within a Christian, adolescent context.”'
