The Stations of the Cross is a Christian liturgical tradition that dates back to the 15th century. The stations represent 14 episodes in Jesus’ last days, from his condemnation to death to the laying of his body in the tomb. Most come directly from the gospels. Others, such as Jesus falling three times, reflect oral traditions from the early days of the church.
Taking place in the newly opened Bradford Gallery, you are invited to sign up for one 30-minute time slot per household to walk and pray through each station. In order to help with social distancing and to comply with current COVID-19 guidelines, only two households are permitted in the Gallery per 30 minute slot.
At each station, you will find images, along with Scripture, reflection, and prayer. We will also have hands-on activities and aids specifically designed to engage teens and children.
We hope this ancient spiritual practice will enrich your Lenten experience as we look together toward the miracle of Easter morning.
