Going beyond 'What are you giving up for Lent?'


“We have all this talent here in our diocese,” Meadows said. “I have heard all of them speak. They are all dynamic speakers.”

On Friday, the church will do the “Stations of the Cross” in the company of clowns. This is a program that has received a lot of attention in the Catholic Church. It uses clowns and mimes to tell the story of Jesus’ journey — from being condemned to death, his taking the cross of execution to the hill where he is nailed to the cross, his death and the removal of his body to the tomb.

“The clowns are from our diocese,” said Martha Delello, a parishioner of St. Mary’s. “We have planned this for a long time. Last year, we wanted them to come but they were already booked somewhere else.”

Anyone who is interested in the programs is invited to attend. For more information call (607) 432-3920.
