The Stations of the Cross have formed part of Christian devotion at Passiontide for many centuries because they offer a particularly vivid way of following in the steps of Jesus on the way to the Cross, and enable us to engage actively with the path of suffering walked by Jesus. They originated when early Christians visited Jerusalem and wanted to follow literally in the footsteps of Jesus, tracing the path from Pilate’s house to Calvary. They would pause for prayer and devotion at various points. Eventually, those pilgrims brought the practice back to their home countries and ever since then Christians of differing traditions have used this form of devotion.
To maintain social distancing, booklets showing the station illustrations will be provided.
