Stations of the Cross
8 March @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Stations of the Cross have formed part of Christian devotion at Passiontide for many centuries because they 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.
At St Andrew’s our small carved stations (see https://anglicanipilly.org.au/stations-of-the-cross/) lead us in the way of prayer around the church as we draw on different liturgies that help us to see the face of Christ in the suffering of the world today- and in our own suffering. It has been particularly wonderful to be praying the stations with our friends at Holy Family Catholic Church, and we will do this once again this Lent, alternating between our churches.
