Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross is a Lenten devotion, most commonly prayed on Wednesdays and Fridays during this penitential season. The 14 stations are found around the walls of most churches as a series of icons or images, each depicting a specific event from Christ's last day. At each station we use our senses and our imagination to reflect prayerfully upon Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection, and to simply experience the visual images to reflect on Christ’s love which he showed for us in his most sorrowful passion. During Lent, when we are encouraged to prepare for Easter through prayer, almsgiving and fasting, praying the Stations of the Cross is a good way to make that extra effort – to contemplate, and enter into, the mystery of Jesus' gift of himself to us. Stations of the Cross will be held at 7:00 pm on Friday evening, followed by Mass.
