Stations of the Cross
March 26-April 7 | North Indy & Online only
Christian Pilgrims for centuries have journeyed to the Old City in Jerusalem to walk in the final footsteps of Jesus along the Via Delorosa, the Way of the Cross. During the Crusades it was not safe to go to Jerusalem so churches in Europe began to create 14 Stations to tell the story of Jesus last journey, from his meeting with Pilate to his burial in the tomb. Almost every Catholic Church in the world has the Stations of the Cross permanently displayed.
This year we are offering a Protestant version of the Stations beginning in the Garden of Gethsemane. All the Stations are related to scripture passages and the readings are accompanied by instructions for an action that will deepen your experience. We have also included experiences for children. The journey is appropriate for individuals, families and adult/youth classes and small groups.
Starting on Monday, March 27 through Friday, April 7, whenever the church is open, come to the Stations of the Cross Welcome Station in the Gathering Area by the main doors to the sanctuary. The entire experience is located in the Gathering Area. Printed booklets and a QR code for use of your phone will be available.
