Oberammergau Passion Play Pilgrimage 2020

Sunday, June 24, at 11:30 (following the 10:00 a.m. service), former Junior Warden, Matt Harper, and our rector, Fr.  John F. McCard will be holding an information session for those interested in travelling to Germany in the summer of 2020 to see the Passion Play in Oberammergau.Oberammergau is a small picturesque German village nestled amidst the Bavarian Alps.  The passion play was first performed in 1634 as a promise to God for the village being spared from the ravages of the Black Plague. With a total cast of 1,000, the play boasts 130 speaking parts and to be eligible for a role, a person must have lived in the village for at least twenty years. The day long musical play is performed every ten years and has made the village a center for Christian pilgrimage and devotion. This proposed trip may offer the opportunity for additional European or Holy Land touring, which we will discuss on June 24. For further information about the pilgrimage, please email Anita Lisk.
