July 7, 2023, Adrian, Michigan – Brother Al Mascia, OFM, a Franciscan Friar, performs a one-man musical, More Love than Skill: A Saint and his Fiddle, at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, July 20, 2023, in the auditorium of the Weber Retreat and Conference Center. 

More Love than Skill portrays the life of Blessed Solanus Casey, OFM Cap (1870-1957), who demonstrated his love for God and for people dealing with poverty in his work at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, begun in 1929. He was beatified in November 2017 at Ford Field in Detroit, one step away from canonization as a saint.

Brother Al, a professional song writer and musician, will tell Solanus Casey’s story through original music, as well as fiddle tunes that Casey would have known and played on his violin.

The performance is open to the public and free of charge, but goodwill donations are welcome. Registration is not needed. For more information, call Weber Center at 517-266-4000.

Weber Center is on the campus of the Adrian Dominican Sisters’ Motherhouse, Adrian, Michigan. Traveling east on Siena Heights Drive, pass the Adrian Rea Literacy Center and turn left just before the solar panel-covered parking lot. Follow the signs to Weber Center.
