THE WAY OF THE CROSS

It is traditional during Lent to remember Christ's suffering and death through the devotion known as The Way, or Stations, of the cross. It is said that the early pilgrims to Jerusalem and the crusaders brought back this devotion from the pilgrimage round the streets of the Holy City.

Here are the depictions, from St Patrick's Church, of the events of the Way of the Cross. In meditating on each, we invite you to share in Christ's suffering, to prepare to share in his glory at Easter.
