Father Robert Blaney “From Broadway to the Altar: An Unexpected Discovery of Faith, Purpose, and Peace” — 4 p.m.
Figliulo Recital Hall
Throughout his life, Robert Blaney looked for success — first as a child pianist, later as an accountant, and then as a professional actor. But it was elusive until a series of events changed his life. It was then that success found him. During De La Salle Week, Father Blaney’s presentation is especially fitting. Like De La Salle, Father Blaney changed his life’s path — relinquishing prominence and prosperity — to answer a call to serve others and to serve God. Father Blaney (now a priest for the Archdiocese of Boston) will share an unusual and winding journey towards acceptance, meaning, and identity from the stage to the altar. A question-and-answer period will follow.
