This year St. James Episcopal Church again will be offering the Stations of the Cross to the community.
The 14 Stations of the Cross are outside the parish on the front lawn, and all are invited to pray the stations as part of their Lenten practice through Easter.
The Stations of the Cross is also referred to as the “Way of the Cross.” It is a devotional exercise that involves visiting and praying in front of each of the fourteen stations and meditating on the Passion of Christ. It stems from the practice of early Christian pilgrims who visited the scenes of the events in Jerusalem and walked the traditional route from the supposed location of Pilate’s house to Calvary.
Participants are invited to come anytime they wish for a self-guided prayerful tour through the stations. Also, on Fridays at 4 p.m. during Lent, there will be guided prayer and St. James invites any who wish to gather to join the group. It is open to all. Remaining dates are: March 17, 24 and 31.
