Even though this is my seventh year attending the Triumph of the Cross Prayer Service, the experience never gets old. The purpose of this outdoor event is to celebrate Jesus’ victory over death. The entire student body, from sixth graders to seniors, stands outside the main entrance together as one. Students from St. Martin de Porres Marianist School also attend, adding to the Marianist family atmosphere. Students are involved in every aspect of the day’s celebration. Juniors proclaim the reading and the Litany. High school students sing in the Gregorian Consortium, while others set up and clean up for S.A.L.T. The wooden cross we received in homeroom will not only serve as a reminder to keep Christ at the center of our lives, but also as a fond memory of an event only at Kellenberg Memorial.
