St. Michael Presents ‘Back from the Dead’ and More Upcoming Events

PETOSKEY – October 28, 2022 – St. Michael High School (SMHS), Northern Michigan’s only Classical Catholic high school, invites you to its presentation of “Back from the Dead” (a Cemetery Walk), tonight (10/28) and Saturday night (10/29), from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at St. Mary’s Cemetery, located at 151 Stover Road in Charlevoix.

“Back from the Dead” is an engaging and inspiring ‘evangelization drama’, teaching the Catholic faith regarding the Last Things along with the Communion of Saints, the Angels, and the three great virtues: faith, hope and charity.  The event is presented by the SMHS Drama program and offers a unique, family-friendly, and distinctly Catholic celebration of Halloween and All Saints Day with a focus on the heavenly and eternal.

Guided tours (approximately 60 minutes long) will depart every 15-minutes, beginning at 7:00pm and ending at 9:00pm.  Admission is $5 per person or $20 per family.  Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes.
