Jesus is Risen!
With these joyful words, the 7th grade students of ‘Katoken’ (Catholic Study Club) ended the play about Jesus’ death and resurrection, The Way of the Cross. They spent the year studying the bible passages in all four Gospels about this event, having split into four groups to compose the script, each taking a separate scene, the Last Supper, the Trial, the Way of the Cross, and the Resurrection. They selected such famous scenes as Peter’s denial, Judas’ betrayal and remorse, and of course the intense interrogation by the high priest and by Pilot. They also included the touching scenes when Jesus spoke to his mother and disciple from the cross, and when he surprised his Apostles after his Resurrection.
The performance was the climax of the year`s activities together. It was a serious study of a key part of Catholic history. Working together, the students created a play that can be used again and again.
Please look forward to our blog being updated.
