Stations of the Cross

We offer Stations of the Cross in our Church every Friday during Lent at 7:00pm and on Good Friday at 12:00pm. We also have outdoor Stations of the Cross available for private prayer. 

Scriptural Stations of the Cross

Families, individuals, and groups are invited to "Adopt a Station". We have a beautiful prayer walk behind the St. Francis Center that contains the Stations of the Cross and a walking path. By Adopting a Station: You will be responsible for caring for the grounds around your station, making the area look nice, planting flowers - if desired, and maintaining the work you've done. 

 

Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross began as the practice of pious pilgrims to Jerusalem who would retrace the final journey of Jesus Christ to Calvary. 

Later, for the many who wanted to pass along the same route, but could not make the trip to Jerusalem, a practice developed that eventually took the form of the fourteen stations currently found in almost every church. 

Similarly, the 150 Hail Marys that were recited for the rosary were an adaptation of the medieval monastic practice of reciting the 150 psalms in the Psalter. 

If you are interested in Adopting a Station, please contact Tim Clifford at the parish office at 513-521-8440 or e-mail him.
