Stations of the Cross

Stations of the Cross will be prayed every Friday during Lent at 7pm in the Church.

What Are the Stations of the Cross?

The 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 His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ’s last day. Prayers are recited, then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete.

At Nativity, parishioners stay in the pews as the priest moves from station to station.
