and Roses, Guadalupe House
September 6, 2004
Lacey, Wash. – Saint Martin’s Campus Ministry will
sponsor a Sept. 11 performance of the one-woman play, “Fool for Christ,
the Story of Dorothy Day,” to raise money for Bread and Roses in Olympia
and Guadalupe House, a homeless shelter in Tacoma.
The production will be at 7:30 p.m. in the college’s
Worthington Conference Center, 5300 Pacific Ave. S.E. A reception will
follow. Tickets, which can be purchased at the door, are $10; $8 for
seniors and students $5 for Saint Martin’s students with college i.d.
Actress Sarah Melici plays Dorothy Day, an early 20th
century journalist who committed her life to nonviolence, protests
against injustice and racism, and helping the poor, homeless, prisoners
and others on the society’s fringe. Day’s peace and justice work
included co-founding the Catholic Worker newspaper, a radical newspaper
promoting the concepts of peace and mercy. Out of the newspaper grew the
Catholic Worker Movement, founded in 1933 and still active today.
Melici, a New Jersey-based actress, collaborated with
Playright Donald Yonker to write the play, which revolves between Day
and about a dozen other characters, all played by Melici.
