The Way of the Cross

The devotion known as the Way of the Cross is an adaptation of the ancient custom widely observed by pilgrims to Jerusalem: the offering of prayer at a series of places in that city traditionally associated with our Lord’s passion and death.

Today these devotions, more commonly known as The Stations of the Cross,  are observed by Christians all over the world in both Roman Catholic and Protestant traditions.  These prayers are traditionally made in procession, just as pilgrims today walk the Via Dolorosa in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Pilgrims to this site are encouraged to walk (around your home, yard, block, or park) as they pray these devotions, beginning with the Opening Devotions wherever you start.


These devotions are according to The Book of Occasional Services by The Episcopal Church.
