Nearly since Everest was founded, the eighth-grade class has been preparing and presenting a living Stations of the Cross presentation each Holy Week. Eighth graders work hard and act, sing, narrate, and coordinate light and sound under the direction of academy dean of discipline, Mr. Cross. The presentation is shared with all the academy students who attend in silence and prayer. The eighth grade remain motionless for each station as the prayers are read and songs are sung. Thank you, eighth grade, for helping us prepare our hearts for this Sacred Triduum.
Special thanks to Mr. Sapienza, Miss Mellis, and Mrs. DiFonzo who helped with music for the presentation.
