The Stations of the Cross are synonymous with Lent, Holy Week and, especially, Good Friday. This devotion is also known as the “Way of the Cross”, the “Via Crucis”, and the “Via Dolorosa.” Thru the stations we follow Jesus on his last day, as he walked through the streets of Jerusalem, carrying the Cross to his crucifixion.
At St Stephen, Martyr Church Stations of the Cross are prayed at 7:00 PM on the Fridays during Lent. On Good Friday the Stations of the Cross are prayed at Noon.
