Teens from the Our Lady of Lourdes Youth Ministry reenacted the “Living Stations of the Cross” during Good Friday on April 19. Congregants of the church walked behind members of the Youth Ministry as they made their way through each station.
Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ’s last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of Jesus’ last day, beginning with his condemnation. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ’s last day. Specific prayers are recited, then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete.
