This week our Church celebrates the greatest mystery of our faith ~ the Passion, Death and Resurrection of our Lord and Savior. As a school community, we prepare for our journey into the three holiest days of the year, the Triduum, through prayer and tradition.
Beginning at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow morning, the students and faculty will gather in the church for our annual Holy Thursday Prayer Service. After listening to Scripture readings and reflecting on the example of Jesus, each of the children will participate in the “hand-washing” ceremony that has become a long-standing tradition in our school.
Following the prayer service, the students will gather in the Parish Activities Center at 10:45 a.m. for the 7th grade portrayal of the Passion Play. Through music and dramatic presentation, middle school students will prayerfully re-enact Christ’s passion and death. As the students depart the space in silence following the presentation, the tone will be set for their continued reflection and prayer over the course of the coming days.
All parents are cordially invited to join us in prayer and to witness these beautiful school traditions.
