Bishop Fenwick Stations of the Cross https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/734/bishop-fenwick-stations-of-the-cross https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/734/bishop-fenwick-stations-of-the-cross Bishop Fenwick Stations of the Cross

A Way of the Cross

Opening Prayer

 

ALL:  Good and loving God, this time of Lent reminds us to reflect on the depth of Your love for us, that Your only Son died for our salvation. Help us to look deep within ourselves, becoming aware of the many ways we could more fully

Love You each day. The world surrounding us offers many challenges; it is difficult to spend time and be present to You. There are so many ways that our world continues to make choices that violate Your love—poverty, war, capitalism, hatred, racism, the refugee crisis, and intolerance. May our prayers today embrace our brothers and sisters around the world whose lives of suffering mirror that of Christ’s journey to the cross. May Your peace, mercy, and justice work to create bridges between all communities of people.

 

The First Station

+ Jesus is condemned to death +

 

Reader:  Washing his hands of innocent blood, Pilate condemns Jesus to death. World leaders wash their hands of innocent blood: collateral damage – unfortunate victims of friendly fire.

 

ALL:  Lord, forgive Your people. Bring those who have died into the light of Your presence and enfold them in Your eternal mercy and love.

 

The Second Station

+ Jesus receives the Cross +

 

Reader:  Taking upon himself the burden of unwarranted suffering, Jesus shares the lot of all those who are overburdened. So many were already burdened with poverty and illness, and now have the burdens of fear of death or severe injury, fear of what will happen to loved ones, what will happen to their future.

 

ALL:  Lord, You share the burdens of those who are overwhelmed by fear and anguish of heart. Show us ways in which we can share their burden, to be in solidarity with them, our brothers and sisters

 

The Third Station

+ Jesus falls for the first time +

 

Reader:  The burden of the cross becomes too great, and Jesus falls. People are scrambling for food, but not strong enough to get to the front of the line. They are pushed aside:  the children, the weak, the frail, the elderly. They fall, and the food disappears into the hands of the strong or those who will sell it to them at exorbitant prices. Their strength is further sapped, their weakness increases, in the dust they despair.

 

ALL:  Lord, our brothers and sisters fall, too weak to stand up to the strong. Help us to support them through the work of agencies who can work alongside them, protecting the weak and raising the lowly. 

 

 

 

 

 

The Fourth Station

+ Jesus meets his mother +

 

Reader:  Where else can a mother be? Drawn to the suffering of her child, Mary meets her son. So many mothers watching children die from cancer, with no access to drugs to alleviate their suffering. Mothers hovering over their children, using their own bodies to try to protect them from bombs and bullets. Pregnant women who are killed before meeting their unborn children.

 

ALL:  Lord, You looked into the eyes of Your mother and saw how Your suffering increased the anguish of her heart. Yet she would not leave You, she would not abandon You. May her mother’s heart reach out in love to all the mothers whose hearts are broken or filled with fear for their children.

 

The Fifth Station

+ Simon of Cyrene helps to carry the cross +

 

Reader:  Seeing Jesus’ increasing weakness Simon of Cyrene is pressed into helping to carry the cross. A man in the crowd, who did not even know Jesus, was forced to share his burden. How many men and women, whose names we may never know, are today sharing the burdens of suffering? Soldiers become brothers and sisters, sharing the fear, the grief for fallen comrades, striving to fight for peace, trying to show a human face in an inhuman war.

 

ALL:  Lord, You needed the strength of another man to share an intolerable burden. Bless those men and women who are using their strength to defend the weak, those who are sharing the burdens of those unable to carry them alone. Strengthen their sense of purpose, and combine their determination to succeed with compassion for those they seek to liberate.

 

The Sixth Station

+ Veronica wipes the face of Jesus +

 

Reader:  A woman overwhelmed with pity comes from the crowd and wipes the face of Jesus. Good-hearted people wiping the tears of those who are broken-hearted, tending the wounds of those who are injured and in pain, going into places of danger to love and serve those in great need.

 

ALL:  Lord, the tenderness of Veronica’s gesture, simple and loving, reflected in countless simple gestures of loving service. Bless those who show the courage to come forward and be seen, protect them as they show mercy and compassion for Your people. 

 

The Seventh Station

+ Jesus falls the second time +

 

Reader:  The burden of the cross again overwhelms Jesus, and he falls a second time. How often can we pick ourselves up and start again.  A people dominated by fear, oppressed and afraid, knowing the fate of those who tried to take a stand before them. Where do they get the courage to believe in their future, and to act in that belief that this time, this time it will succeed?

 

ALL:  Lord, the people enduring conflict both in our community and in our world are bruised and battered, and some are without hope. Raise their eyes to a new future, give them confidence in their own strength and belief that they can make a difference, for themselves and for their future.

The Eighth Station

+The women of Jerusalem mourn for Jesus +

 

Reader: Mourning, weeping, wailing, the sound of grief that fills homes, streets, hospitals, and bomb-sites. Parents weep for their children who grow up surrounded by violence and hatred.

 

ALL:  Lord, You told the women of Jerusalem to weep not for You, but for themselves and their children—in Jerusalem, in Syria, in Honduras, in Lebanon, in so many places, and now they do. Words spoken here cannot bring consolation, but take our love and our prayer, add it to Your own, and let the little we can offer, be of some comfort and support to those left distraught and broken.

 

The Ninth Station

+ Jesus falls for the third time +

 

Reader:  Weakened beyond endurance, Jesus falls for the third time. There will be some who will be overcome with despair, whose souls are ground down into the dust, for whom the prospect of rising to new challenges is beyond their strength, beyond wildest hopes.

 

ALL:  Lord, You know the depths of utter fatigue, the sense of utter failure. Infuse Your love and hope into the hearts of those who are hopeless to begin again, for whom future happiness is glimpsed only through the awareness of pain yet to come. Help us, too, to believe that we can make a difference when all seems darkness, despair, and repeated failure.

 

The Tenth Station

+ Jesus is stripped of his clothing +

 

Reader:  Some of our suffering brothers and sisters have been stripped of everything, their dignity lost in years of unjust government power, their hope by years of oppression, and their grief, their suffering, shown on prime time TV with their wounds visible for the world to see. Some view with compassion, others with idle curiosity, and still others gloat that this is the price of success.

 

ALL:  Lord, our suffering brothers and sisters stand stripped before the world’s gaze. Let that gaze be compassionate. May their pain evoke in us a desire to ease their suffering, and the will to fight for peace with justice in the whole of the earth.

 

The Eleventh Station

+ Jesus is nailed to the cross +

 

Reader:  We hear stories of great cruelty inflicted on rivals, torture and random killings of those who disagreed. People living with deep, cruel scars, minds haunted by memories too fearful to share. Nails driven through minds and hearts, pinning them to terror, to fear, and to despair.

 

ALL:  Lord, we cannot begin to imagine the pain you endured, but Your pain makes Your compassion real for those who have suffered unimaginable agony. Pour Your healing love over them, enfold them in Your mercy. Give them a sense of security, so that the wounds inflicted on body, mind and spirit can slowly be healed and, like Yours, become signs of glory, of witness to the triumph of good over evil.

 

The Twelfth Station

+ Jesus dies on the cross +

 

Reader:  So many deaths, some swift and unexpected, some slow and lingering. Death has no respect for age. There is no concern for the elderly and frail, young soldiers, men and women in the prime of life, children, and babies yet unborn.

 

ALL:  Lord, death feels final. Sudden death leaves us stunned and reeling, our hearts bleed for those who suffer a long, slow decline. We entrust the souls of all who have died in war, terrorism, and conflict to Your mercy. We ask You, who walked through the veil of death, to be there to meet them, and lead them home.

 

The Thirteenth Station

+  Jesus is taken down from the cross +

 

Reader:  We see a mother and father holding their dead child, friends standing in disbelief that the one they have loved has died. Long moments of weeping, sighing, longing to bring them back to life, but not to the suffering, never back to the suffering.

 

ALL:  Lord, we offer You those moments of loss, as the reality that the one we love is no longer there. The hand we touch is cold, the heart is still. May those who mourn find comfort in the love of family and friends. May the love of Your mother, who held You in her arms, bring them comfort. May our compassion transcend the distance that separates us, and in the solidarity of humanity, touch their souls with our love.

 

The Fourteenth Station

+ Jesus is placed in the tomb +

 

Reader: The final glimpse of the one who has been so loved.  A last touch, and then, the end. A hasty burial with mourners. A lonely cremation in a burnt-out tank. The moment when death becomes reality, the moment of parting the moment of walking away, to try to pick up the pieces and rebuild a life.

 

ALL:  Lord, so many people are standing by gravesides, wondering how to rebuild life without the one they love. May they find hope in the midst of their grief, a conviction that their loved one did not die in vain, and that they are safe, free from pain and fear, at rest in God forever.

 

+ Awaiting resurrection +

 

Reader:  In the rubble and conflict of war, what hope can we find? In the suffering and despair of humanity, how can we believe in the future? In the face of death, how can we believe in resurrection?

 

ALL:  Lord, in our world today, our faith can be tested to the full. We share the desolation of people torn apart by suffering, and wonder whether life really is stronger than death. Yet You have walked through death to new life, Your family and friends bore witness to Your resurrection. We trust Your word and their witness and look to the future with confidence that the cause of all the pain in the world is sin, but all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well. Amen.

Three Deserving Bishop Fenwick Students Celebrate US Military Appointments! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/732/three-deserving-bishop-fenwick-students-celebrate-us-military-appointments https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/732/three-deserving-bishop-fenwick-students-celebrate-us-military-appointments Three Deserving Bishop Fenwick Students Celebrate US Military Appointments!

Three Deserving Bishop Fenwick Students Celebrate US Military Appointments

Bishop Fenwick High School is extremely proud to announce that three Seniors from the Class of 2018 recently received US Service Academy Appointments.  Jenna Adams will be attending the United States Air Force Academy, Joe Colley will be attending the United States Naval Academy and John Gillen will be attending the United States Military Academy (West Point Academy, New York).

Bishop Fenwick school counselor, Jean Horn, considers it a great honor to serve as the counselor for all three students. Together, she and the three students learned the “ins” and “outs” of the process. “I am so relieved, although not surprised, that all three applicants have received appointments - they are some of the most well-deserving young adults I have had the pleasure of working with in my almost 25 years as a Catholic educator.”

Academically and athletically these three students set the standard. Yet, it is those intangibles and additional contributions to the community around them that set them apart and distinguish them as worthiest of the opportunity to attend a prestigious US military academy. Each student has their own unique meaning of what their appointment means to them and their families.

Jenna Adams

Jenna Adams grew up witnessing her sister attend the Air Force Academy in Colorado; little did she know then that one day she would have the same ambitions. Once settled into Bishop Fenwick her sophomore year, after a childhood in Georgia, Jenna began to explore her options for the future. As she learned more about what the Air Force Academy had to offer, she began working towards a goal to get there. On her 18th birthday, Jenna accepted her appointment! While she is looking into a path of pre-medicine, she knows there are endless possibilities for her so she remains open through her journey.   

One of Jenna’s biggest fans and school counselor, Jean Horn, can’t say enough about how Jenna is a gift to her personally and to those who are fortunate enough to find themselves in her midst. “The joy she brings to the lives of others, the determination of will and ability to discern her best course of action lend itself to each and every task before her, regardless of its challenge. And, the depth of her faith is an unparalleled asset for a young woman of her age.”

At Bishop Fenwick Jenna is on the Lady Falcons Basketball Team, runs track and cross country, is a Student Ambassador, is a Peer Mentor, and participates in the Fenwick Right to Life Club and Drama Club. Jenna is a St. Francis De Sales parishioner and lives with her five siblings and parents in Lebanon.

Joe Colley

The military was a dream of Joe Colley’s since he was in diapers, but he gained a passion for the Navy by the time he was in his sophomore year at Bishop Fenwick. You can imagine Joe’s excitement when he received a phone call from Senator Steve Chabot last week to make the big announcement of his Appointment to the Naval Academy. Currently, Joe wants to fly but says he will do anything but submarine missions… can you blame him? Joe’s father is an Air Force veteran and his older brother and Bishop Fenwick alum, Patrick, is in the ROTC program at Notre Dame University.

When you meet Joe, you come in contact with a seasoned old soul in a cheerful and dependable young man’s body. “I have observed and witnessed him choose the most admirable option among a list of many alternatives over and over again because his moral compass is both impeccable and inspiring,” says Horn. She continues to add, “His sense of humor, while subtle, still can catch me off guard and truly make my day.”

At Bishop Fenwick Joe plays tennis, swims and runs cross country along with being on the Academic Team and in Key Club. Many have witnessed Joe playing the bagpipes at Bishop Fenwick events; this is a unique passion for Joe that he practices and performs with his Pipe Band.

John Gillen

One day after a rough wrestling practice, John Gillen returned home to his Certificate of Employment to West Point Academy in New York. The long-awaited arrival of his acceptance filled John with excitement and visions of the future. With no plans set just yet, John hopes to study engineering at West Point and see where God guides him.

John is a graduate and parishioner of St. Francis de Sales in Lebanon. At Bishop Fenwick, John is a wrestler, plays football, is a Student Ambassador, a Peer Mentor and on the Student Council. Jean Horn describes John’s determination and passion, “John is a young man who knows what he wants and goes after it with ALL he’s got. Confidence and commitment guide his word and deed.”  

Bishop Fenwick is also proud to announce that Senior Sam Harris has received the University of Dayton ROTC Scholarship. Each of these students make the Bishop Fenwick family so proud. They truly bring a sense of faith, determination and, compassion into the lives of everyone around them. From teachers to peers to coaches, there are countless witnesses to the contribution each make daily to the betterment of our community.

Bishop Fenwick High School Participated in National School Walkout https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/727/bishop-fenwick-high-school-participated-in-national-school-walkout https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/727/bishop-fenwick-high-school-participated-in-national-school-walkout Bishop Fenwick High School Participated in National School Walkout

Students Gather in Prayer in Honor of Those Killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS Shooting

Schools across the nation are responding to the call for students to walk out of their classrooms for seventeen minutes sending the message that they object to gun violence. They are responding to the fatal tragedy in Parkland, Florida one month ago. At Bishop Fenwick, a group of compassionate students made it their obligation to involve the school with this nationwide movement.  

Student organizers at Bishop Fenwick wanted to join this movement and make a statement in a unique way. They approached Principal Blane Collision with an idea to hold a prayer vigil in memory of the seventeen youth who perished at the hands of a gunman. “They came to me with a well thought-out, passion-driven plan for our school to be involved in the National Walkout Day,” said Collison. He continued, “Prayer and awareness were the focus of the project; therefore, our walkout included a prayer service for all students, faculty, and staff to participate in memory of students who died, and to acknowledge the impact of gun violence in our communities.” 

This morning, amidst the falling snow, Fenwick students, walked out of their classrooms in solidarity with National Walkout Day. They walked into the courtyard where they read specially prepared prayers honoring the victims, calling out the names of each victim and lighting a candle in their memory. At the end of the vigil, students were invited to sign a poster giving testimony of their support against gun violence.  The poster will be sent to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.  

A specific goal of the student organizers was to emphasize the fact that Fenwick’s walkout was student-led. Our students recognized that high schools have become targets and that since 2013, the United States has experienced over 300 school shootings. Bishop Fenwick students are taking action to promote peace and end gun violence around the world.   

Fenwick  faculty and staff are encouraging students to continue efforts to spread faith and compassion driven ideas and actions to benefit both the Fenwick community and beyond.   Our Talons of Faith, Integrity, Compassion, and Service are cornerstones of creating an environment where ideas like the walkout prayer service can thrive. We applaud our students, Ronnie Januszki ‘20, Hannah Wilkins ‘19, Bridget Kleingers ‘20, Isabella Gunigundo ‘20, Grace Beene ’20, and Abbi Thompson ’18 for their inspiring efforts that brought Fenwick together in a powerful way this morning.
