The Stations of the Cross are the 15 scenes on which Catholics meditate on the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The students portrayed tableaus of three stations at a time as other students narrated the scenes. In between each station, the choir led the congregation in singing “At the Cross Her Station Keeping,” a 13th century hymn about the Stations of the Cross as seen by Mary.
Also in between every three stations, when the actors changed scenes, the choir sang traditional Lenten hymns including “Lift High the Cross,” “O Sacred Head Surrounded” and “Were You There.”
The performance was a prayerful way for students, families, parishioners and friends to enter into Holy Week.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
