The Stations of the Cross are a beloved prayer that gives focus to Lenten devotions, and are also appropriate at any time of the year. The prayers suggested are merely that—suggestions. For example, the use of the Stabat Mater hymn has no direct correlation to the prayer of the Stations, but instead opens up a way to think about the Lord's Passion; in this case, through the eyes of His Mother. There are many other ways to think of the Way of the Cross; consider the perspectives of the disciples or of the guards, or even our own memories of having made the Stations at different moments in our lives. Meditate on the images of the stations however you like, and let your heart guide you.
STATIONS AT OUR MAIN CHURCH
The Stations of the Cross triptychs at the main church were crafted by Bolesław Parasion, a renowned Polish folk artist. Their rich imagery, both open and closed, are a delightful inspiration to the prayer of the Stations of the Cross. These stations follow an unusual, though scriptural, path through the Lord's Passion.
STATIONS AT OLD TOWN
The Stations of the Cross at our Old Town Chapel follow the traditional arrangement.
