Stations of the Cross
February 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ’s last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ’s last day. Specific prayers are recited, then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete.
The Stations of the Cross are commonly found in churches as a series of 14 small icons or images. They can also appear in church yards arranged along paths. The stations are most commonly prayed during Lent on Wednesdays and Fridays, and especially on Good Friday, the day of the year upon which the events actually occurred.
We are looking forward to a very rich time over this Lenten season – particularly as we visit the “Stations of the Cross” on Fridays with our “Got Soup?” series where we finish up our time with a simple dinner of soup, salad and bread.
We are asking for a few participants each week in order to make each week a success and are offering this sign-up form in order to accomplish that. Each Friday we need:
• 3 people to help prepare food (at home) and clean up Ignatian Hall (commitment – 5:30 PM – 7:15 PM)
• 2 Leaders/Readers (Prayerfully reading a “Stations of the Cross” prepared script)
• 2 Candle bearers
