I have a link to share with you as well: Have a Blessed Holy Week from Holy Cross Catholic School. Our kids did an incredible reenactment of the Stations of the Cross, and a parent took some beautiful pictures.

Do check out this Triduum reflection through the sincere eyes of Jesus’ little ones. See that active, conscious, and genuine participation in the sacraments and spiritual services does enhance an appreciation for the Word of God.

What experiences moved your own heart this Triduum?

    Some of the students from Roscrans Catholic High School presented the Stations of the Cross at St. Nicholas Parish, Zanesville, OH. They connected the traditional with today.

    One student represented Jesus, another Mary and ten others represented past and present day. Two girls narrated from the choir loft in two parts first the station itself and then a prayer representing today. During the prayer in a very simple way the station was portrayed. Very inspiring.

    After the stations the three Seniors spoke on which station touched them most or represented something meaningful in their lives. I was very touched by their presentation.
