The Way of the Cross – Mystery Players – April 1, 2015

ScreenShot1121

When:  Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.

Where:  St. Rose of Lima Church, Newtown, CT

The Mystery Players High School Students from Watertown New York perform, in a very creative and dramatic way, the Stations of the Cross.  The sanctuary is the stage for a powerful presentation with special lighting, music, pantomime, and para-liturgical readings.  Meditation and contemplation on the death and resurrection of Jesus is the central mystery in the prayer life of the Catholic Church. 

We strongly encourage everyone to attend this unique and powerful prayer experience.  Please be advised that small children may be frightened due to the nature of the play. There is no admission charge.  For additional information, search the internet for IHC Mystery Players or go to:  www.ihcschools.org/spiritual-life/mystery-players
