STATIONS OF THE CROSS

Posted on Thu, Apr 17, 2014

Good Friday at noon

The Stations, or Way of the Cross, is an adaptation of a custom widely observed by pilgrims to Jerusalem: the offering of prayers at a series of places traditionally associated with our Lord’s passion and death.  The stations are pictorial representations of the events described in Scripture and tradition of Jesus carrying the cross to Golgotha, the place of his crucifixion. These stations are mounted along the walls of the church, and the participants move from station to station, offering prayers and devotions at each one.
