Broadway’s timeless classic musical whisks you away to a place where dreams are born and no one ever grows up!


Broadway’s timeless classic musical whisks you away to a place where dreams are born and no one ever grows up!

Based on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale, Peter Pan is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favorites of all time. This high-flying Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years.

Peter (Emily Perevich) and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children (Rachel Farrell, Jonathon Dodds, Luke Tytler) late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe led by Tiger Lily (Zoe Ferraro), a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook (Annie Heyen)and sidekick Smee (Emma Mittiga).

Featuring the iconic songs, “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up” and “Never Never Land,” and a rousing book full of magic, warmth and adventure, Peter Pan is the perfect show for the child in all of us… who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up. Peter Pan is a dream come true and entertains countless families.

Irondequoit, N.Y. – Deacon Dan Callan (BK alum) led a beautiful Ash Wednesday service for the Bishop Kearney student body,  as well as our special guests (students and faculty) from Holy Childhood. Ash Wednesday is one of the most popular and important holy days in the liturgical calendar. Ash Wednesday opens Lent, a season of fasting and prayer.

Ash Wednesday takes place 46 days before Easter Sunday, and is chiefly observed by Catholics, although many other Christians observe it too.

Ash Wednesday comes from the ancient Jewish tradition of penance and fasting. The practice includes the wearing of ashes on the head. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us. As the priest applies the ashes to a person’s forehead, he speaks the words: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”

Alternatively, the priest may speak the words, “Repent and believe in the Gospel.”

Ashes also symbolize grief, in this case, grief that we have sinned and caused division from God.

Writings from the Second-century Church refer to the wearing of ashes as a sign of penance.

Clergy administer ashes during Mass and all are invited to accept the ashes as a visible symbol of penance. Even non-Christians and the excommunicated are welcome to receive the ashes. The ashes are made from blessed palm branches, taken from the previous year’s palm Sunday Mass.
