Growing in Love of God and Neighbor

Lent 2024

Stations of the Cross

Join Jasmine Declet for Stations of the Cross, held in the church on February 16th and March 8 and 22. Comprised of 14 stations of reflection and prayer, each depicting one of the moments leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion and death, the Stations of the Cross is a centuries-old form of prayer used traditionally in Lent. Jasmine will lead the Stations of the Cross this Friday February 16th, and on March 8th and 22nd.  The service is geared toward adults, but all ages are welcome.
