The Way of the Cross is a walk alongside Jesus on his journey through the hardest moments of his life. There are 14 stations, some based on scripture and several added through the centuries by faithful pilgrims who have received strength and encouragement from this practice.

All of us have times in our lives when suffering is unavoidable, whether because of choices we have made or circumstances that life has brought into our path.

As we pray the Way of the Cross, we learn from Jesus that when the dark days come, we are not alone, just as he was not alone.
