SRLA Is Preparing for Holy Week
SRLA's student body will attend Mass during Holy Week and participate in the Stations of the Cross together, and our preparations have begun!
The 5th Grade is leading an outdoor Stations of the Cross in the cemetery for our preschool and primary grades. The students are memorizing narratives of each Station, then ending each Station with a question, giving the audience a moment to reflect on what is occurring in that Station and how it impacts their lives.
The 6th Grade is preparing and will lead the Stations of the Cross as Way Walkers depicting the people who journeyed with Jesus to his death. Pontius Pilate, Mary Magdalene, Simon are but a few of the Way Walker characters represented as Jesus journeyed to crucifixion and was laid in his tomb. The entire school will witness this presentation.
Our 8th Grade will help prepare the Church for the Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper. The students will bury the 2023 sacred oils as Saint Rose of Lima prepares to welcome the new oils. Next, they will remove all the holy water from the Church and witness the draining of our immersion baptismal font. Finally, they will witness the removal of the Blessed Sacrament from the tabernacle and the reserving of the Eucharist for the Viaticum.
