The Journey, Cross & Crucifixion, March 2

A live dramatic presentation of the Stations of the Cross.  Join us as we experience the trial of Jesus, His journey through the streets of Jerusalem and His final moments on the cross. Free will donation.

Journey back through time. Walk with Christ and become one with Him and the people who walked with Him. For many who have shared the Journey it is almost as if it were happening now for the first time. The music, narration and dialogue all add to the power of this prayerful meditation. To be part of The Journey, Cross, and Crucifixion is to experience the devastation of Mary, the frustration of Simon, the loneliness and desolation of John, Pilate’s struggle between justice and expediency and the excruciating pain and degradation Jesus suffered on the way to Calvary and His ultimate death on the Cross. This  powerful, prayerful Lenten experience brings the Passion story to life.

 

 

 

 

High school faith formation planned

St. Boniface Martyr Parish wishes to further the faith formation of high school students. We are all on a continuous faith journey and we would like to make available to young people some new avenues of growth, including mini-courses about our faith for high school students. Adults interested in teaching such a course  recently held an initial planning meeting, but more adults need to be involved if we are to implement this important project. Another meeting will be held in he very near future.  Please consider helping with the continued faith formation of the young people of our parish! Please contact Mrs. Croce at 516-671-0418 or stbonccd@gmail.com.
