LEWISTON — Real-life examples of hope growing out of hopelessness will be explored at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, at Lifetree Café, 1919 Lisbon Road.

The program, “Redeemed: A Real-Life Cinderella Story,” features interviews with destitute Filipino children whose lives changed dramatically after the children were accepted into a ballet school.

“These are not only human beings who want bread, clothes, and a roof over their head,” says the Rev. Rocky Evangelista, a priest who was instrumental in connecting the children with ballet. “These are children who want to change the world.”

During the program, participants will have the opportunity to share stories about times they’ve seen difficult situations redeemed.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual setting.
