For Christians, Good Friday is the most solemn day of the church year. Eighth grade students at All Saints Catholic School in Davenport honor Jesus Christ in a very reverent way. Every eighth grader took part in the Living Presentation of the Stations of the Cross.

Pontius Pilate questions. The crowd chants. Students portray several of the characters who were involved in the beating, death, and burial of Christ. Teacher Cheryl Jones wrote and directed the presentation. She says the students pray before the performance, asking God for His blessings. They pray that the presentation honors and glorifies God.

Joana Lara portrayed Mary, the mother of Christ. She looked on and never uttered a word as the events of Good Friday unfolded. Joana says the entire presentation was moving and humbling.

Brandon Loos portrayed Christ. Brandon says this is how Jesus died and how He sacrificed His life to save all mankind.   

The students presented all fourteen Stations of the Cross. Many thought provoking questions were also written into the script. As a school, the eighth grade students at All Saints have been presenting this program for seven years.

Teacher Cheryl Jones say the questions and reflections are a very important part of the Lenten Season. She says that Christ's death is a message about sacrifice and love.
