Throughout Holy Week, students and staff in schools across the York Catholic District School Board have been reflecting on the significance of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Many schools held Masses and liturgies with their school communities, others marked the solemn events of Good Friday by walk through the Stations of the Cross, hosting Passion Plays, or doing special in class activities and art projects.
At Guardian Angels CES in Woodbridge, Grade 5 classes recreated Jesus's steps to the cross through a shadow tableau, artwork, live acting, media, dance and thoughtful reflection. This Passion of Christ Evening Liturgy, helped to nurture the relationship between the school, home and church. The entire Guardian Angels CES parent community was invited to join with staff and students on the spiritual journey of walking together with Christ through prayer, song, liturgical dance and reflection during Holy Week. Approximately 150 parents attended the liturgy and the feedback was overwhelming positive. Great job Grade 5s!
