Episode 20: Divine Mercy Passion Play 2021
Saint Agnes School is proud to share with everyone the 2021 Divine Mercy Passion Play performed by our 6th grade students. The narration and character voices were recorded on site under the direction of Mrs. Claire Bona over the past several weeks. Our students worked very hard and are proud to present to the Saint Agnes community the final production, assembled by Mrs. Bona, author of the original script. Normally, this annual event would have been performed during Holy Week for parents, teachers, and fellow students in the beautiful Helene Houle Auditorium. While it is not, sadly, the live performance with all our 6th graders, we hope that this recording inspires everyone to contemplate God's unfathomable Divine Mercy during the Triduum and Easter season! "Jesus, I trust in you!"

Divine Mercy Passion Play - Holy Week 2020
Saint Agnes School is proud to share with everyone this audio drama, created with the script for the 6th Grade Divine Mercy Passion Play. This annual event would have been performed this Holy Week for parents, teachers, and fellow students in the beautiful Helene Houle Auditorium. With the acting support of the 1st grade and selected 5th Graders, our 6th grade students had already put many hours into memorizing their lines, roles, and blocking, and creating voice-over recordings for the performance. In honor of the 6th Grade and their hard work, and as a gift to everyone during this strange Holy Week in quarantine, Mrs. Claire Bona (6th grade teacher and Director of the Passion Play) and her immediate family produced this audio drama. The voice recordings were created with special guests Dr. Kathleen Kirsch and Ms. Sami Burr, fellow members of the Saint Agnes faculty. The original voice-over recordings of student actors have also been integrated in the drama; featuring the vocals of Kidus Dawit as Jesus, Lily Drayton as Saint Faustina, Anali Flores as Mother Mary, and Rafael West as Saint Peter. While it is not, sadly, the live performance with all our 6th graders, we hope this recording inspires everyone to contemplate God's unfathomable Divine Mercy during the Triduum and Easter season! "Jesus, I trust in you!"
