The Cross and the Light

The Cross and the Light is a Broadway caliber musical and surround video experience that combines the powerful Gospel story and modern musical theater into a “baptism of the imagination” at our parish church.  There will be six performances at St. Catherine Catholic Church in Orange Park the weekend of March 3-6.  This show is a great way to get young adults and families engaged in the Paschal Mystery.  To encourage our brothers and sisters from neighboring parishes to attend, St. Catherine is offering group sales to all Churches and parish groups, like Religious Education classes or RCIA.  Group tickets can be purchased at a discount of 10% for 10 or more tickets and 20% of 20 or more tickets by calling our Group Sales office at (904) 637-1197.  For show times, individual tickets and prices, as well as a great introductory video about the show, visit www.stcatherineop.com/the-cross-and-the-light.
