Sunday night was a very special night for the St. Faustina youth group in Nanticoke. Once a year, they put on a performance of the “Living Way of the Cross.” This past Sunday, March 25, 2018, marks the 11th year the youth group has taken their story to the stage. This is a highly anticipated event for the church, and a lot of participation was needed from the church community to make it spectacular. The play was featured on the WNEP news station: http://wnep.com/2018/03/25/students-perform-living-way-of-the-cross/

Below is an interview with senior, Eric Jeffries, who played Jesus this past Sunday.

 

How many years have you participated?

I have been a part of the Living Way since I was in 6th grade. So that’s 7 years now.

 

What were your past roles?

In the past I have been cast as an apostle twice, a guard twice, the head guard, and Judas.

 

What does this role mean to you?

It’s a big honor to play Jesus in the Living Way of the Cross. This play is anticipated all lent long by a good number of people in the parish; they say that it completes their Easter season. It’s nice to be a part of something that is so meaningful.

 

How much work you put into this?

Because I was Jesus, I had to learn my lines outside of the practices, but that wasn’t too bad. There were really only two days that went into this: one practice the Sunday before the show, and one the Sunday of the show. It’s pretty amazing that such a professional looking show can come out of two rehearsals.

 

Thank you to the students who put so much effort into making this story come alive!
