St. Cyprian community presents Passion of Christ

GEORGETOWN — Members of St. Cyprian Church’s Hispanic community undertook a major re-enactment of the Via Crucis, the Passion of Christ, on Good Friday.

Approximately 60 to 70 people worked arduously to build scenes and props under the guidance of Sister Sandra Parra, a Sister of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, coordinator of the parish Hispanic ministry.

Participants worked for days preparing for the passion, often into the morning hours and then going to work on their day jobs afterward. The sets were built  both inside and outdoors, and children and adults took part.

The group also organized a Seder meal on Holy Thursday to which they invited members of the local Methodist community.

Approximately 200 people attended the Via Crucis that started at 7:30 p.m. April 10 and ran for over two hours. People came from Georgetown, Andrews and as far away as the Midwest.

Though the entire passion was in Spanish, the message came across in any language.
