Assumption High School Shadow Stations Team to perform Passion
By City Times staff
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The Assumption High School Shadow Stations Team will perform Christ’s Passion, in a reenactment of Christ’s suffering, performed in shadow.
The Shadow Stations Team is comprised of 18 students in grades nine to 12.
“Being that we are in a Catholic school, the students know the story of the Lord’s Passion very well. Shadow Stations isn’t just for Catholics, but it is relative for all Christians,” said Cathy Hunn, Assumption Shadow Stations advisor.
“Viewing the Lord’s Passion and witnessing the suffering and the sacrifice he made for our salvation really adds a great depth to one’s Lenten Journey as we prepare for the Easter Season. When people leave the gym, they usually have a feeling of sorrow for their sins as well as gratitude for Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.”
Assumption High School has been producing the event for over 25 years.
“We typically rehearse for two Sunday afternoons prior to Lent,” Hunn added. “Since the story is the same each year, the students who have been in Shadow Stations previously assist the new members so it runs quite smoothly. The students both act and sing throughout the performances. We have two parents and myself who guide the students, but it is student-driven.”
Performances will take place Feb. 27, March 4, and April 9, all at 7 p.m., at Assumption High School.
“These performances are wonderful to experience during one’s Lenten journey. They are appropriate for high school age and adults,” Hunn said.
