It was their personal journey to Calvary.
On April 17, Kindergarten students at St. Thérèse of Lisieux Catholic Elementary School embarked on an outdoor Stations of the Cross at Bishop Tonnos Park where they replicated the final stages of Christ’s journey to Calvary.
The Stations of the Cross are a set of 14 devotions which describe the Passion of Christ and Jesus’ final hours culminating in his crucifixion and death.
Guided by Teacher Katelyn Grice and DECE Maria Vavallo, the FDK students spent time at each station as they reflected on the meaning and purpose of Jesus’ life and death.
“The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as individuals move from station to station,” said Mrs. Vavallo. “The Passion Play performance that they watched at school on Holy Thursday had so much more meaning for them after they visited the beautiful Stations of the Cross at Bishop Tonnos Park.”
