The Sacred Heart Spring Concert performance was held on Thursday, April 24. The theme was God Has a Plan for You. The kindergarten through 2nd grade children performed Oh Jonah, the story of the prophet Jonah. It’s more than a story of a whale swallowing a human. It’s a story about us. It’s a tale about running from God’s will and His plan. It’s about responsibility, repentance, listening for the word of God in our lives, accepting people who are different from us, and believing that there is mercy and compassion for all who turn toward God. Serious thoughts, but told with a sense of humor and lots of fun!
The 3rd through 5th grades as well as the 6th and 7th grade liturgical choir students presented Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. This is the story of Jacob’s favorite son, Joseph, and his 11 jealous brothers. Joseph never gave up hope; he continued to believe that God had a plan for him. Even when the situation is dark and scary, God’s providence saves us and renews us. This is also a story of redemption and forgiveness. Joseph was originally written as a children’s cantata, and we will be presenting it in its original form.
All the students dressed in solid brightly-colored T-shirts & jeans.
I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God while I live. ~ Psalm 104: 33
