Stations of the Cross


The Stations of the Cross will be held every Thursday during Lent in the Brennan Hall Chapel at 12:10 pm. (This is a 20 minute prayer experience for all students, faculty and staff and all faith backgrounds are welcome)   Following the Stations of the Cross, Campus Ministry will host a FREE simple lunch (Soup) for all who attend.

What is the "Stations of the Cross"?

The Stations of the Cross is a popular devotion used by individuals or groups who wish through prayer and reflection to follow Jesus Christ on his way to Calvary. Many Christians practice the devotion, but the Stations hold a special significance among Roman Catholics during Lent.  It is one of the most important devotions honoring the passion of Jesus.

What matters most in the Stations of the Cross is to follow Jesus Christ in his passion and to see ourselves mirrored in him. To face life's dark side in ourselves and in our world, we need images of hope, and Jesus offers images of hope in his passion. By accompanying him on the Way of the Cross, we gain his courageous patience and learn to trust in God who delivers us from evil.   (taken from The Stations of the Cross and other devotions to the Passion, by Rev. Victor Hoagland, CP)
