Pupils Perform Thought Provoking Easter Reflection

On Wednesday 29 March students from the Sixth Form performed Out of Darkness, an Easter reflection on the Stations of the Cross, in the College Theatre. The 14-step Catholic devotion commemorates Jesus Christ's last day on Earth as a man.

It was a powerful and moving piece involving mime, music and readings and was thoroughly thought-provoking and uplifting.

Chaplaincy Prefect, Luke Dunkley, one of the students involved commented, “It was a truly spiritual evening, that effectively combined theatre and music with the tradition of the stations of the cross. The atmosphere allowed individuals to reflect on each station, and on the wider issues, such as war and poverty. The pictures and talk from the charity 'Aid to the Church in Need', symbolised how people across the world are experiencing the trials Jesus faced during his passion, but also how people are uniting and supporting charities like this to improve people's lives.”

We would like to thank all the attendees for your generous donations which will go to support Aid to the Church in Need’s work in the Middle East. More information on the charity and their work is available from their website. http://www.acnuk.org
