THE ARTIST Divine Mercy Drama
Saint Faustina - Messenger of Mercy
Nancy Scimone has presented over 100 performances of her Divine Mercy drama "Saint Faustina-Messenger of Mercy" throughout North America. From Kansas farming communities to transcendent cathedrals, her one-woman drama heralding God's imminent message of Mercy continues to receive enthusiastic acclaim.
Performances include the Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts and the historic Holy Rosary Church in Baltimore, where the miracle healing of Fr. Ron Pytel occurred. In 2016, she toured with eight performances for the Diocese of Superior's Respect Life ministries. She has performed a ten-performance Chicago tour, and has presented the drama for the Diocese of Arlington Office of Vocations, the John Paul II Center in Washington, DC, Christendom College, the Padre Pio Center, in the dioceses of Arlington, Baltimore, Brooklyn, Des Moines, Duluth, Lincoln, Newark, Omaha, Orlando, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Richmond, Rochester, Rockford, San Francisco, Scranton, Superior, Syracuse, Wilmington, Toronto, Little Sisters of the Poor convents, Newman Society, Serra, Project Rachel, 40-days for Life and Catholic Daughters of America.
In 2005, Nancy and her husband made a pilgrimage to Poland to visit Sister Faustina's convents. She was given personal guidance by Sisters at both the Warsaw and Krakow convents, learning special history of Sister Faustina and her convent life. Immersing herself within Sister Faustina's realm and being with the sisters helped transform further Nancy's portrayal of Sister Faustina for her drama.
A classically trained artist, she has performed vocal concerts in New York City's Church of Our Savior for The Sisters of Life, the Basilica National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception (Washington, DC), Bar Harbor Maine Music Festival, the Yonkers New York Philharmonic and on the steps of the US Capitol. In 2013, she was chosen as the soprano soloist in Handel's Messiah at the John F. Kennedy Center Concert Hall. Her music is heard on Catholic radio including EWTN. She is also an accomplished vocalist in American swing music of the 1930's and 1940s and has performed at Smithsonian National Zoo events, the United States Botanic Gardens, and many historic venues with her ensemble. She and her husband reside in northern Virginia and are members of Holy Spirit Catholic Church.
