FORT PIERCE | St. Anastasia Parish’s theater ministry will host three “Passion of Christ” performances Friday and Saturday, April 8-9, in the school auditorium, 401 S. 33rd St.
Re-enacting the last days of Christ’s earthly life, the Scripture-based play brings together St. Anastasia and San Juan Diego Centro families, who begin practicing for their roles in January and continue through the Lenten season. They spend more than 50 hours studying the word of God and rehearsing.
“Over the years, it’s become more than a ministry. The cast has become a family,” said Father Richard George, pastor of St. Anastasia. “The Passion Play provides an opportunity for the parish community to encounter the power of forgiveness and the unconditional love God has for his people.”
