LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — St. Boniface Catholic Church re-created the crucifixion of Christ for the 15th year on Good Friday.

It's coordinated by the church's Hispanic Youth Group and although the performance may have been in Spanish, the message was universal. It's a story they say you have to see to believe.

“It's very visual but I think it needs to be visual and it's very hard to watch but I think it needs to be that in order for it to touch you the way that it's supposed to touch you,” said Coordinator Sandra Valle.

St. Boniface took the community on a journey to the day Jesus Christ was crucified. Valle said coordinating an event like this goes beyond just rehearsal.

“It takes months of preparation but I believe it takes community more than anything,” said Valle. “It takes people coming together and wanting to walk this walk with all of us together.”

They set out more than 300 chairs and every seat was full with crowds of people also standing.
The performance was in Spanish but that didn't stop non-speakers from taking something away.

“Since we don't speak it you can almost kind of, you can imagine what they're saying and it makes it a little bit more interesting,” said attendee Andrew Ortner.

Attendee Charlotte Ayala added, “Going to a Catholic school and kind of knowing the stations all ready and going through it. We kind of know what's happening already and it's really cool to see the community come together.”

The cast members range in age and this year's attendees reflected that.

“Even at this young age, you know, they're very attentive and I think they really try to understand some of what’s happened,” said parent Mari Delreal.

“I bring my kids to see how Jesus died on the cross and it's a good experience for me and for all my family,” said parent Rudith Amaro Silva.

The play was held on 9th and North Street and the cast had more than 30 members.
