The stations of the cross were devised hundreds of years ago to give ordinary Christians an opportunity to walk the way of the cross with Jesus, without having to go to Jerusalem. People still appreciate them today as an aid to thinking about the events of Holy Week, before Easter .   This year we are looking at how we can bring the stations very close to home. In Jerusalem, on the Via Dolorosa, there is a place for each…

As with all our services, everyone…
