Sophia Academy Students Reenact Christ’s Passion

Published March 28, 2013

In preparation for Holy Week, the eighth through tenth grades of Sophia Academy, Atlanta, presented the “Living Stations of the Cross: A Dramatic Performance of Jesus’ Last Hours” to the school community on Thursday, March 21.

Director of Religious Education Julie Noggle said she wanted to bring these stations to life by having students read them aloud and portray them theatrically in the round.

It was a sacred performance that closed with hymns of reflection and praise. The Stations of the Cross is a devotion used to remember Jesus’ final hours leading to the crucifixion and resurrection.

Sophia Academy is a Marist-sponsored Pre-K-high school private school in DeKalb County that provides personalized education tailored to meet student needs in a faith-based environment. It is seeking designation as an independent Catholic school.
