Helena’s Father Stu Hits the Big Screen
Coming to the big screen in April – “Father Stu,” a movie based on the real life of Helena’s Fr. Stuart Long. Academy award winner Mark Wahlberg produced the film and stars as the Helena-raised former amateur boxer who wound up as an unlikely candidate for the ministry.
We’ll talk with Father Bart Tolleson, who ministered with Father Stu, and Bill Long, Stuart’s father, who aided in his son’s ministry before an autoimmune disease claimed his life in 2014.
Wahlberg, Director Rosalind Ross, and others involved in the story will take part in a special screening of the movie Monday, in Helena.
