We follow Jesus’ example of what it means to be a servant through ritual hand washing and see the origins of the Eucharist at the “Last Supper” Jesus shared with his disciples. The altar is stripped as all exit in silence. The “Vigil” is kept through the night following the service. All are welcome!
Stations of the Cross is a series of images and related prayers covering events that Jesus Christ went through on the day of his crucifixion on Mount Calvary. Stations helps Christians make a spiritual connection to the suffering Christ endured on his Passion. It is typically a path of 14 numbered images arranged around the nave of a church. Worshipers stop at each station in order for specific prayers and reflections.
