The story of Christ’s Passion is one of the most spectacular stories of all time, with Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, the witnessing of miracles, the last supper, the Garden of Gethsemane, the arrest and trial of Jesus, the crucifixion and finally the death and resurrection.

Last year’s Passion Play, The Power Of The Cross, was highly successful and was seen by over 800 people on the evening of Palm Sunday. This year’s Passion Play is entitled Lead Me To The Cross and will be performed two nights. You can choose from Friday, March 22 at 7:30 p.m. or Sunday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m. This is a major fundraising event for our Parish, with all proceeds going directly to the church. With a fully adult cast, high quality production value and over 20 singers and musicians, this Passion Play is not to be missed.

This production brings an interesting approach to the story leading to Christ’s death and resurrection. The music, which is immersed in the show, was specifically chosen, and arranged to highlight certain features of the scenes taking place on our stage, and will evoke an emotional journey for the audience. We will recognize ourselves as followers of Jesus, and like the famous poem “Footprints In The Sand,” which plays a part in our opening scene, we will feel Christ walking beside us and lifting us up through this approach to Christ's Passion. We hope you will join us on His journey!

Tickets are $25 each. There will be a 20 minute intermission. The production will be held at St. Padre Pio Parish, 5500 Major Mackenzie Dr., Kleinburg, Ont., L0J 1C0. The Passion Play is not appropriate for children under the age of seven. Babies in arms are not allowed and all audience members must have a ticket.
