The Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross are a centuries old tradition which began with pilgrims to the Holy City of Jerusalem wishing to follow in the footsteps of Jesus in his last few hours on the road to Calvary. This practice widened to other places using images depicting fourteen events in Jesus’s journey to his death. The Stations of the Cross adorn the walls each Catholic Church and a feature of our Lenten Services.

The particular images here were created for the HCPT who each year bring children to Lourdes. To avoid the almost impossible path, for children with disabilities, of the the Lourdes Stations of the Cross banners were made and set around a field. The images were bold and colourful as the children especially those with sensory issues would notice the rough images and the bright colours.

In this year, when all pilgrimages to Lourdes have been cancelled for the immediate future use these images and refections with your families as an act of solidarity with HCPT, Youth to Lourdes, the Archdiocese of Glasgow’s Chilrens’ Pilgrimage to Lourdes and the many other groups who will not visit Lourdes this Easter.STATION2
