Stations of the Cross


The Stations of the Cross have formed part of Christian devotion at Passiontide for many centuries because they enable us to engage actively with the path of suffering walked by Jesus.
They originated when early Christians visited Jerusalem and wanted to follow literally in the footsteps of Jesus, tracing the path from Pilate’s house to Calvary.
They would pause for prayer and devotion at
various points.
Eventually, those pilgrims brought the practice back to their home countries and ever since then Christians of differing traditions have used this form of devotion.

The Church of England is running a series of podcasts "Walking the Way of the Cross" - daily episodes marking the Stations of the Cross from Passion Sunday (21st March) to Easter Day
(4th April).
