Stations of the Cross – Friday 10 March

Stations2017-CAFOD

This evening (Friday 10 March, 19:30) our Stations of the Cross share Jesus’ final steps toward Good Friday, and also reflect on the experiences of those who fall and thirst.

CAFOD are leading this liturgy of Stations of the Cross, the reflections of which give us a contemporary echo of the pain and suffering experienced by people around the world, giving us a fresh perspective through which to remember Jesus’ suffering for us.

Today – Friday 10 March – is Lent Fast Day, when we go without so others don’t have to. And the money we save, and our donations, go to help CAFOD with their work.
