Holy Week at The Casa

Just in time for Holy Week, editorial director Karen Sue Smith has narrated an audio slide show of Holy Week 2008 at the Franciscan Renewal Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. Also known simply as "The Casa," the center is known for quality of its music, liturgical dance and drama and the enthusiastic participation of its congregation.

You can view the slideshow here. For optimal presentation, we recommend you boost the audio on your computer.
