The Book of the Prophet Jonah is read in its entirety during the Divine Liturgy on Holy Saturday. A new play by Shawn Cunningham, a member of Saint Nicholas Church, Mentor, OH, offers a contemporary, engaging presentation of the prophet’s adventures. The play, and some accompanying activities about Jonah, can be found here.
