A reminder that a major representation of the suffering and death of Christ will be staged, with great pageantry and choral accompaniment, here in Castleisland on Good Friday night at 8pm.
What’s being billed as ‘A Solemn Celebration of the Passion’ with musicians, singers and a 30 plus strong cast of actors in costume will be presented at the Church of Saints Stephen and John here in Castleisland on Good Friday night at 8pm. The event will be directed by Fr. Pat Ahern. The musicians and singers involved in the performance are from St. John’s Church, Tralee. They will collaborate with the actors in a dramatic expression of the suffering and death of Christ.
The group will be part of the first ever animated Good Friday ceremony here in Castleisland. The team of costumed performers will be supported by St John’s Choir under the direction of Michael O’Shea.
