Rehearsals for St. Alphonsus’ 17th annual Passion Play begin Thursday, Jan. 24, at 6:30 p.m. on the New Side of the church.

The play – “Make Us Believers” – is a musical journey from Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to his death and resurrection.

All are invited to participate. We need men, women, teens and kids to be singers, actors, musicians and stage crew. Entire families have participated in past years. Rehearsals will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the church until March 19 when rehearsals move to the Ryan Center.

The play will be performed on Friday, April 5, at 8 p.m. and on Saturday, April 6, at 7 p.m. in the Ryan Center, which is adjacent to Blessed Francis Seelos Academy.
