We are all familiar with the proclamation of the ‘Lord’s Passion’, usually delivered in three voices, from our attendance at the Good Friday Ceremonies each year. It is a solemn moment during which the journey of the Suffering Christ is recalled. The names of the central characters are all so familiar to us. We recall vividly the poignant moments of the Lord’s Passion; moments filled with emotion, tenderness and deep human pain. We reflect on that journey to Calvary, where Jesus hangs upon the cross. Good Friday is so central to our faith, and this is obvious when people stand patiently and reverently in line to either touch or kiss the cross.
This year in the Church of Our Lady and St David, we are hoping to have a dramatisation of the Lord’s Passion. We need people to take on the various roles, including crowd scenes, approx. 30 – 35 people are required. When rehearsed and performed prayerfully it can be a deeply spiritual and moving experience. If you think you might be interested, and would like to find out more, then please leave your name and contact number with the Parish Office.
The Good Friday Drama will be produced and directed by Mona Conroy. The Co-ordinator of this Holy Week initiative will be Caroline Quinn. This invitation is extended to one and all! Please give it your consideration as it has great possibilities.
