"Whom Shall I Send?" is an inspiring musical performance for the Lenten Season that engages the audience in a story of faith, love and friendship.

The free performance is open to the public and will be presented in Our Lady Queen of the Apostles Chapel.

The performance finds its roots in the New Testament as it depicts God’s call to the disciples, a call of conversion, and their response. The play explores the humanity of the disciples – their doubts, fears and joys – as they respond to the call of the risen Christ. The energetic dialogue along with the vibrant songs and dances celebrate the spiritual journey of Peter, Paul, John, Mary Magdalene and Lydia. "Whom Shall I Send?" explores the unique ways that each character is called by God and the show inspires audiences to reflect on the call of God in their own lives. The Xavier Company has been producing musical plays that proclaim the gospel and explore themes of spirituality and social justice for more than 30 years in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
