On Jan. 11, the comic talents of cartoonist and author Dan Reynolds will be featured at Divine Mercy Parish center, St. Michael’s campus, in Central Square.
Reynolds, an artist for American Greeting Cards whose work has been seen in The Catholic Digest, Saturday Evening Post and Reader’s Digest, is an active parishioner at Divine Mercy Parish. He has created a show that will be a comedic commentary on his religious cartoons and the ideas that inspired him. Reynolds, a cancer survivor and father of three, crafted the show as a way to get people excited about religion.
“Our God is a God of surprises and that’s what humor is all about. My goal is to have both people laugh and make them think,” stated Reynolds. “When we sit around with our friends and listen to something humorous, we tend to be more open to what is being said. I want that to happen: to have people be open to humor because I believe that laughter is a grace and a gift from God.”
Tickets to the Divine Mercy comedy night are $5 and all proceeds from the event benefit the Divine Mercy teen youth group. Seating for the show is limited and reservations are required. No walk-ins will be permitted. Tickets can be purchased through Divine Mercy Parish by calling (315) 676-2898.
