Scenes from "His Last Days", a Passion Play that captivated the audience and set them in the mood for a very prayerful and solemn observance of the Holy Week. The Play was held in the Our Lady of the Airways Church from April 5 to 11, 1990. Here's the endorsement of then Cardinal Carter: "It promises to be a very moving Passion Play, the like of which we have not had in Toronto for quite a number of years."
Jesus was played by John Peter Desnoyers and Pontius Pilate by Fr. Jan Kolodynski. The other cast of characters and choir were assigned to the parishioners young and old. The Play was produced and directed by Dean Barreca. Words and Music by Dallas Holm.
