STATIONS OF THE CROSS -
Apologies from the senior warden! Stations of the Cross, a lay-led service that follows the final path of Christ from His condemnation by Pilate to His death on the cross and entombment, has been a regular part of our Lenten tradition for the past several years, but I am late in getting it onto our schedule.
This service will be offered each Wednesday in Lent at 5:15 p.m., immediately prior to our 6:00 p.m. Lenten meal and program. All are welcome to participate as they are comfortable – whether by walking the Way of the Cross or sitting in a pew and meditating on the stations as they are recited. Please join us in the nave for this meaningful Lenten discipline.
