The 14 jewels
The first graders from St. Wenceslaus presented a
version of the Stations of the Cross called The 14 Jewels
in the King's Crown. Their teacher, Miss Mary Jo Brinkman, works with her class on the presentation.
The children learn speaking parts and prepare costumes
in order to act out the story. Days of practice and
anticipation happen before the their trip to the Motherhouse. They also give other performances at
the parish for parents and friends.
After the performance, the children join the Sisters for
strawberry shortcake and conversation. Then a trip to
the Healing Garden and a prayer with Jesus ends their visit.
