On Friday 19th February, members of the Parish Pastoral Council took part in a ‘Zoom’ Stations of the Cross.
This recording is now available for you to use, if you would like to follow the Stations for Lent.
How to Pray the Stations
Before each station the person leading says: We Adore You, O Christ, and We Bless You!
Everyone Replies: Because by Your Holy Cross You Have Redeemed the World.
Then each leader names the station, and offers a reflection on it.
Between the stations – The leader will share a story about a Crucifix which is of importance to them. Have you a crucifix thats important to you? Please send us a picture, and a short description of why the Crucifix is special.
After each station we all say together: I love you Jesus, my love above all things. I repent with my whole heart of having offended you. Grant that I may always love you, and then do with me what you will.
Pray the Stations at home using the prayers and meditating for a moment on each station.
