The Stations of the Cross

by Victor Hoagland, C.P.viacrucis

Praying  the “Stations of the Cross” is a popular devotion used by individuals or groups who wish through prayer and reflection to follow Jesus Christ on his way to Calvary. Many Christians practice the devotion, but the Stations holds a special significance among Roman Catholics. It is one of the most important devotions honoring the passion of Jesus.

What matters most in the Stations of the Cross is to follow Jesus Christ in his passion and to see ourselves mirrored in him. To face life’s dark side in ourselves and in our world, we need images of hope, and Jesus offers images of hope in his passion.  By accompanying him on the Way of the Cross, we gain his courageous patience and learn to trust in God who delivers us from evil.

Every one is invited to pray with us. We will pray the Stations of the Cross every Friday of Lent at 7:30 PM in church. This will take less than 30 minutes of your time
and will help you participate on the mysteries of the Lenten Season.

On the last Friday before Palm Sunday,
we will pray the Stations of the Cross in Italian at 7:30 PM
and in Portuguese at 8:30 PM.
