About the Event

Early on in the Christian movement, Jesus’ followers remembered his trial and execution by walking to the places where various events occurred. By the Middle Ages, pilgrimages to Jerusalem for Holy Week were a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage. So, when folks couldn’t travel to Jerusalem to walk the Via Dolorosa with Christ, the ritual of the “stations of the cross” was born so that people could journey with Christ spiritually in their own community.

Here at Grace, we participate in the ancient tradition of remembering Christ’s death by doing an ecumenical version of the traditional “stations of the cross”. Participants will be invited to walk through the 14 stations in our sanctuary, read scripture and participate in some activity to remember what happened as Jesus walked to the cross. The sanctuary will be open from 12 noon until 8 pm.
