Walking the Stations of the Cross at Mt. Angel Abbey
Please meet in the St. Francis parking lot on Saturday, March 13 or Tuesday, March 23 at 1:00 pm. We can then travel together to the Abbey.
Walking the Stations of the Cross is a very old custom of walking from 1 to the next of 14 images (“Stations”) which depict Jesus on the day of his crucifixion as he walked from Pilate’s court to Mt. Calvary. At each Station we pause for a period of prayer.
This is an outdoor walk and is very different than doing the Stations inside the church. It is often cool and maybe wet. It is also a longer, uphill walk. These more challenging conditions make us more aware perhaps, of the suffering of Jesus.
Masks and social distancing will be required. For information, contact Dcn. Ken Russell, 503-887-5587 or firstname.lastname@example.org
There will also be a service of the Stations of the Cross following the noon Good Friday Service, April 2 in the nave.
