Sooner than we expect, our Lenten preparation will culminate in the celebration of Holy Week. One opportunity to enter more fully into preparation for that celebration is the upcoming presentation by the 7th grade students of the annual SGS Passion Play, to which you are invited. For many years, the tradition of the Passion Play has been a beautiful and evolving combination of various spoken parts from the Passion of our Lord in Scripture, music, meditations, and art – all of which serve to deepen both the students’ understanding of the mystery of our Lord’s Passion, and the understanding of those who come to see it, in preparation for Holy Week.
The Passion Play will be performed in the church twice: once as a school dress rehearsal beginning at 1:30pm on Friday, March 13, and in the evening of the same day, beginning at 7:00pm. You are welcome to join us in this beautiful, meditation and prayer!
Know of my prayers for all of you during the Triduum and the Easter Octave. May Our Savior’s love and forgiveness overflow in and through us to one another.
