The Passion Play

What's the Passion Play? An event that has run for 33 years and running, the Passion Play is an experience that sets HNOJ apart. 9th and 10th graders participating in The Passion Play at HNOJ tell the greatest story the world has ever known. Powerful. Riveting. Unforgettable. Dedicated directors, adults, and high school teen directors guide our Confirmation teens through an experience that takes them back 2,000 years in history through the life and passion of our Lord. The Passion Play does count as one retreat during the two year Confirmation process.

What if I've never been in a play before? Totally ok! In the last 33 years, the majority of students participating in the play have had no acting experience. If you'd only like one line, that's ok. if you'd prefer not to have any lines, that's also ok. The is a role for any and every teen, regardless of how much acting experience you have.

Who? The Confirmation Teens, 2 Dedicated Directors, Energetic Teen Directors, and Phenomenal Group of Adult Volunteers. The Passion Play is an experienced designed for our teens preparing for Confirmation. The Passion Play cast is lead by a dedicated, passionate, and talented group of volunteers who help to make this the life-changing experience that it is.

Where? All auditions, rehearsals, and the performance take place at Holy Name of Jesus.
