One of the things that has long been on my ‘bucket list’ is to go to the Passion Play in Oberammergau.
In 1633, the residents of Oberammergau, Bavaria, Germany, vowed that if God spared them from the bubonic plague ravaging the region, they would produce a play thereafter for all time every 10 years depicting the life and death of Jesus. In gratitude, the play was first performed in 1634 and has been performed faithfully since. The production involves over 2,000 performers, musicians and stage technicians, all residents of the village.
It is now scheduled for next year and if we don’t see then, we will have to wait until 2030! With St. Mary’s of pilgrimages, I am including in the bulletin this week the first info on going!
Most of these trips are already full and have waiting lists because people start booking them as many as 3 years in advance! However, we have been able to set up one for our parish September 7 to 17 of next year. If you want to go, we will need to get deposits in quickly, so that we can secure tickets to the passion play as those are going fast!
See the info on this page and I hope you join us!
