St Patrick's College Strathfield

Holy Week Liturgy


Our staff and students gathered as one to remember and acknowledge Holy Week in the lead up to Easter. Breen Oval set the scene and fire, ashes and water symbolised elements of our faith.  Students recreated still scenes of the Stations of the Cross with one character from each scene speaking about how they contributed to this injustice, how they felt in their moment or what they observed as Jesus walked to the cross.

We communally reflected on our humanity through the words of Gracefully Broken sung by Luke Vaccher and Ms Knapman, accompanied on keyboard by Bailey Yeates, as we were blessed with water. Fr Jack and Dr Lavorato tied the story together, helping to put it in to the context of our lives today, and all were called to care for those who are broken, lost, infirmed or excluded in any way. It was a credit to all students and staff involved, in front of or behind the scenes. Now is the time to prepare for the Resurrection of our Lord at Easter and celebrate in the great season of hope!
