Sixth- through 12th-graders from Holy Sepulcher and St. Kilian Catholic schools presented The Living Stations — Stations of the Cross in tableaux form — on Good Friday at St. Kilian Roman Catholic Church in Cranberry Township.

“It’s a prayer service, not a play, that depicts the life, Passion, death and resurrection of Jesus,” said Andrea Wheeler, director of middle and high school ministry at St. Kilian.
