Dear Friends,

Now that a week has gone by and we’ve all hopefully been able to catch our breath after this year’s FEST, I’m excited to announce a wonderful, not-to-be-missed concert this Saturday 8/20 on the campus of Gilmour Academy in Gates Mills.

On Saturday August 20th, musician Paul Todd and his son, Paul Todd Jr., will be performing two benefit concerts at Gilmour Academy’s Our Lady Chapel: a matinee at 3pm and an evening performance at 7pm. Click to preview:

This renowned entertainer, composer, arranger and singer has performed in theaters and concerts halls around the world. He is currently the music director at St. Agnes Catholic Church in Naples, Florida.  Paul frequently volunteers his time and talent to raise funds for various charities. Their “Father and Son” charitable summer tour will make a stop here in Cleveland for one day only – August 20th, and will benefit the work of the esteemed missionary to Madagascar, Father Pedro Opeka. To learn more about him visit

A few generous sponsors have agreed to waive the ticket price for all volunteers, sponsors, and promoters of The FEST, plus all those who participated in any way…even attendees!  So as not to be charged the ticket price, simply arrive at either performance and mention you are a “Guest of the FEST.”   A free-will offering will be taken to benefit Father Opeka’s ministry among the poor in Madagascar.

Gilmour Academy is located at:
34001 Cedar Rd.
Gates Mills, OH 44040

Be part of the “Miracle in Madagascar!”  To help insure the success of this unique event, please feel free to forward this letter to family, friends, and acquaintances.  This concert is sure to be memorable – those who have seen Paul perform share that they left feeling truly “inspired and uplifted!”

For more information or to purchase tickets, visit  or call 1-800-965-9324.  (Again, FEST people need not pre-order tickets…just show up!)

Thank you and God Bless,

Father Bob Stec
