On the day before spring break started, underclassmen and faculty at Benedictine College Preparatory watched the senior class put on a beautiful presentation. The senior class acted out the Stations of the Cross. The Stations of the Cross is a tradition that takes place every year at Benedictine. Every year, the whole school, as well as faculty and parents, file to the auditorium at the end of the school day to observe the production.
“It was a great way to realize the true meaning of Easter,” said sophomore Jacob Dunleavey. “It made me realize why our faith is so important, since Jesus died for our sins.”.Each year, the production is overseen by senior theology teacher Bill Doran. Mr. Doran goes over the script with his senior classes weeks in advance, and the senior class works extremely hard to put on a nice production.
This year the production, once again, did not disappoint. In front of a packed auditorium, the senior class proved that practice makes perfect. The senior class provided fantastic imagery for each station. Patrick Todd, the man who played the star role of Jesus, did a magnificent job showing the struggles that Jesus had to go through just to die for our sins. Many in the crowd exclaimed in wonder at the power and inspiration of the scenes.
"It was a great way to realize the true meaning of Easter," said sophomore Jacob Dunleavey. "It made me realize why our faith is so important, since Jesus died for our sins.".
Mr. Doran once again did a great job pulling together a bunch of rag-tag seniors suffering from bad cases of senioritis to put on a flawless production.
The Stations of the Cross was a very entertaining and empowering production, and it was the perfect way to kick-off the start of the Easter season.
