What Is Stations of the Cross?
The Stations of the Cross is a tradition that dates back centuries as Christians used to make a pilgrimage back to Jerusalem to the Via Dolorosa, the path Jesus walked on his way up to Calvary. Today’s Stations of the Cross follow Jesus in his pain and suffering in his final days before his crucifixion.
This year, our Stations of the Cross is an interactive liturgy of ten stations from A Sanctified Art and Rev. T. Denise Anderson, former moderator of the Presbyterian Church(USA). Each station has an interactive element that connects Jesus’ suffering to the suffering we see in the world today. This will be a Stations of the Cross unlike any other that you have experienced before.
Where Do I Go To Check-In?
Please arrive no more than 5 minutes before your time slot. The Stations of the Cross begins at the sanctuary entrance (Door 1) of Southminster and ends at Door 13 (on the other side of the parking lot). You can park in the upper parking lot off of Far Hills Ave. A volunteer will meet you in the Narthex and show you where to begin.
Are You Following COVID-19 Safety Guidelines?
Yes! The stations are spread out for social distancing, and masks are required for all participants at all times. There will only be one person per station at a time, and there will be hand sanitizer at every station. If you forget your mask, no worries, we’ll have extras.
How Long Does It Last?
The stations take approximately 20-30 minutes to walk through, depending on how much time you want to spend reading and praying. Everything is indoor and handicapped accessible.
We invite you to come by and prepare your minds and hearts for Good Friday and Easter Morning.
