PORTLAND — Youth ministry members and Maine Catholic school students will present the Living Stations of the Cross around the state leading up to Easter Sunday, April 1.

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.

Local youth presentations include:

Auburn: Students at Saint Dominic Academy will present the Living Stations of the Cross at 11 a.m. Good Friday, March 30, at the school’s Auburn campus, 121 Gracelawn Ave.

Freeport: Youth from the Parish of the Holy Eucharist will present the Living Stations of the Cross at 5:30 p.m. Friday, March 23, at St. Jude Church, 134 Main St.

Gray: Youth from the Parish of the Holy Eucharist will present the Living Stations of the Cross at 5:30 p.m. Friday, March 16, at St. Gregory the Great Church, 24 North Raymond Road.
