For the last two years, St. Paul's has hosted a themed Stations of the Cross experience during Holy Week, with each station sponsored by a church group, family, or individual. This program honors the ancient story of Jesus’ earthly journey and death while recognizing the ways this narrative speaks to us and our world today.
Located in the Octagon
Open 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM and 5:00-7:00 PM.
Monday through Friday
April 3-7, 2023
The Stations of the Cross are a series of Scriptures which tell the story of the crucifixion. Even though we know that death does not have the final word and resurrection is coming, this is a practice that gives us an opportunity to reflect and repent. This self-guided experience consists of eight stations (abbreviated from the traditional fourteen). Each station will invite you to reflect in different ways on a particular thought or Scripture.
First Station: Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane
Second Station: Jesus is Condemned by the Sanhedrin
Third Station: Jesus is Denied by Peter
Fourth Station: Jesus is Judged by Pilate
Fifth Station: Jesus Bears the Cross
Sixth Station: Jesus is Crucified
Seventh Station: Jesus Dies on the Cross
Eighth Station: Jesus is Placed in the Tomb
