Service features Lenten prayer, musicFebruary 6, 2020
ST. MEINRAD — Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology will present a service of Lenten prayer and music called “Redeemed: A Musical Journey through the Stations of the Cross.”
It will be held at 7 p.m. CT Sunday, March 29, in the school’s St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel. The service is free and open to the public. It is expected to last an hour and 15 minutes.
The Stations of the Cross originated in pilgrimages to Jerusalem somewhere between the 12th and 16th centuries as a way to reproduce and pray through the Via Dolorosa, or Sorrowful Way, recounting the final steps of Christ on his way to Calvary.
“Redeemed” will highlight scenes from the Stations of the Cross through choral and communal singing. It will feature the choral and orchestral works of John Stainer, Rob Gardner and Joseph M. Martin, among others.
More than 40 seminarians, monks and community members will be offering their talents for this Lenten service.
Parking is available in the Guest House and student parking lots.
For more information, contact Mary Jeanne Schumacher during business hours at 812-357-6501. For updates on the day of the performance, call 812-357-6611.
