The liturgy of the Stations of the Cross is a way for us to walk with Jesus as he went from Pilate’s palace to his place of crucifixion. The practice started in Jerusalem where the faithful would mark that last walk of Christ by stopping and praying at significant points of that walk. The liturgy consists of walking 14 “stations,” which are marked and correspond to those stops made in Jerusalem.
At 2:00 pm on March 26th and April 5th, we will leave the church and go to Mt. Angel Abbey and walk the Stations of the Cross there. The liturgy will be also offered at St. Francis on Good Friday (April 15) after the noon service.
Please let Deacon Ken know (503-887-5587 or firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to join us for either (or both!) of the days at Mt. Angel or have any questions.
