Lenten offerings from the Norbertine Center for Spirituality

Lenten Series - People at the foot of the cross: the ongoing dying and rising of Christ
Our Lenten series begins with Fr. James Neilson’s “Praying the Stations of the Cross” program. Fr. Neilson, St. Norbert College art professor, will blend the traditional images of "The Stations of the Cross" with works of art drawn from both religious and secular cultures. The following four presentations will focus on the people who stood around the cross of Christ on that first Good Friday. The people at the foot of the cross brought their grief and sorrows to be held there by God's own grief and suffering. They stand for each of us.

Cost: Free will offering.
Dates/Times: Saturdays, February 28, March 7, 14, 21, 28 from 9:00-11:00 am.

Msgr. Jim Feely, March 28

War Requiem
Benjamin Britton, renowned English composer of the 20th century, has taken the liturgy of the Requiem Mass and created a monumental work incorporating the poetry of Alfred Owen, a World War I poet who was killed the day an armistice was reached. Derek Jarman's War Requiem, a dialogue free film, is a violent, horrifying and ultimately inspiring masterpiece.
