Stations of the Cross for Families

On Good Friday we adapt this ancient ritual for our younger parishioners. Parents, chiildren and grandparents gather to hear the story, learn about the cross and its significance and walk through the events of the story. Because it was a rainy morning we started indoors and looked at the small Easter Garden we planted more than a week ago - and saw suggestions of the new life that will come We learned about the trial, carrying the heavy cross, the women who wept, a death, the tearing of the temple and the spices that were part of burial. The morning was quiet and reflective. We then went downstairs and decorated eggs for the coming Easter Day.
