St. Gall Catholic Church hosts a dramatic presentation of scripture, light, and movement when Michael Reardon prayerfully and powerfully proclaims "The Gospel of Mark," on May 25.
Directed by Patrick Lane, this is a contemporary translation of scripture, proclaimed in the oral tradition of the early church, designed with music, lighting, and costuming.
Michael Reardon has memorized the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as well as the Book of Revelation, and performs them dramatically worldwide.
He is a native of Anaconda, Mont.
They have given more than 1,000 performances in cities throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Republic of China, Europe, and Israel.

Their performance has also taken them to the cradle of Christianity: Jerusalem, Capernaum, Tiberias, Nazareth, and the towns along the shores of the Sea of Galilee.
The public is invited to attend 7 p.m. at 1343 Centerville Lane, Gardnerville.
