Stations of the Cross

This Lent, we will walk the Way of the Cross, as we prepare for Easter. Every week we will look at different stations of the Passion. Stations of the Cross is an ancient spiritual practice that is pilgrimage for us. We, as Christians, value the season of Lent, as it brings us back to the cross, reminds us of our mortality, and our need for God and God’s grace. Join us in setting aside time to read, pray, and slow down this Lent!
