Stations of the Cross on all Friday evenings of Lent

The Stations of the Cross will be prayed each Friday of Lent at 7pm in the church, immediately followed by Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. We hope you will join in these devotions as we walk the Via Dolorosa with Jesus and then adore Him as The Lord.  Currently, reservations are not required to attend.  For those who cannot attend in person, we have a recorded livestream that can be viewed on our Facebook page.
