Stations of the Cross

On Friday, April 12th at 7pm there will be an opportunity to walk the Stations of the Cross in the Sanctuary. In ancient times, Christians commonly made pilgrimages to holy places. During the medieval period, when pilgrimages to Jerusalem were popular, people there began to walk the path Jesus took from his arrest to his crucifixion. Since not everyone was able to travel to Jerusalem, the church began to offer local pilgrimage liturgies, such as, the Stations of the Cross. People would move from station to station, following the events through the words of scripture, drawing us into Jesus’ journey, thus giving us an opportunity to understand something of Christ’s passion and our involvement in it. Consider this as part of your Lenten practice.
