In 1943, during World War II, four US Army chaplains aboard the SS Dorchester sacrificed their lives saving others as the ship sank. PMRP has retold their story in an original radio-drama adaptation by Chris Lockeardt, and our recording is now available for purchase at CD Baby. (Audio downloads are available now; a CD is forthcoming.) You can also listen to a trailer or view or download the program brochure from our Four Chaplains project page. (You can also learn more about the Four Chaplains and the Dorchester’s sinking by a German U-boat on Wikipedia.)
PMRP has teamed up with Somerville’s Eat @ Jumbos for Happy HalloWings! A fundraiser for PMRP and a kick-off to our Halloween season.

So on Thursday be sure to drop by, call in or hit their website (www.eatatjumbos.com) and order your fill of pizzas, wings or sandwiches. Also note they have a huge selection of vegetarian and vegan options as well.
