BEAVER CREEK – High school students from St. Clare of Assisi school and St. Patrick’s Parish are preparing to bring Jesus’ “Way of the Cross” to life. The program will be presented at 7:30 p.m., Saturday in the Chapel at Beaver Creek.The “Living Stations of the Cross” will follow Christ’s journey from his entrance into Jerusalem to the last supper. The 14 stations of the cross are a Roman Catholic tradition dating back many centuries, and are usually a series of pictures, sculptures, paintings, and carvings.

In Saturday’s performance, students will animate the stations, instead. Eileen Jacobs, program director, said she has modeled the program on one that has been done for 20 years at her “home” parish in New York.

“The purpose of the living stations is to help people make in spirit, if you will, a pilgrimage to the chief scenes of Christ’s suffering and death,” she said. “The students are creating an experience to be shared by everyone and it is one they will not forget,” Jacobs said.For more information, call the parish at 827-5784, ext. 11.
