Area youth presenting Stations of the Cross

0

PORTLAND — Members of youth ministry and students at Maine Catholic schools will present the Living Stations of the Cross around the state leading up to Easter Sunday, April 16.

The Stations of the Cross began as the practice of pious pilgrims traveling to Jerusalem to retrace the final journey of Jesus Christ to Calvary. They have been prayed for centuries, allowing Christians who are unable to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land to spiritually follow in the steps that Jesus took from his arrest and judgment to his crucifixion, death and burial.

Youth presentations in the area are set for:

Auburn — The eighth-graders at Saint Dominic Academy will present the Living Stations of the Cross at 11 a.m. on Good Friday, April 14, at the school’s Auburn Campus, 121 Gracelawn Ave.
