Saint Marianne Cope comes to life Saturday, June 6, 2015 when the Saint Marianne Cope Shrine & Museum presents the one-woman play “November’s Song” at the TheRedhouse.org, 201 S. West St., Syracuse, New York at 1:00 p.m.
The performance will be followed immediately by a reception in the Redhouse Café.
The one woman play takes place on the Hawaiian peninsula of Kalaupapa, where then Mother Marianne Cope and several other sisters of St. Francis from Syracuse came to care for patients with Hansen’s disease (leprosy). Marianne tells the audience the story of her life, starting with the November day in 1862 when she entered the Franciscan community in Syracuse through her years as administrator at St. Joseph’s Hospital and her move to Hawaii in 1883 to care for individuals isolated from society because of their illness.
Proceeds from the play benefit the Saint Marianne Cope Shrine & Museum, 601 North Townsend Street, Syracuse, New York.
Tickets are available for $25 online at TheRedhouse.org or by calling the box office at 315.362.2785.
