Les Misérables, one of the most popular stage productions of all time, and a story with strong Catholic and Christian underpinnings, is coming to Anchorage’s Atwood Concert Hall for 13 live performances Oct. 17-26. Just prior to the arrival of the Broadway play, a free screening of the 2012 academy award winning movie version of the story will show at the Beartooth Theater pub in Anchorage.
The ongoing 40 Days for Life campaign in Alaska and around the world runs through Nov. 2. The international 40-day prayer vigils take place each fall and spring with pro-life advocates gathered outside abortion facilities to peacefully stand vigil, pray for unborn babies and help mothers choose life for their children.
One of the leading voices in the modern version of the pro-life movement will be in Alaska next month to speak at two banquets held by Alaska Right to Life. Co-founder of the international 40 Days for Life prayer vigils, Shawn Carney, will deliver the keynote address at two gatherings, one on Thursday, Oct. 2, and another on Saturday, Oct. 4.
