Dunkirk church holds Way of the Cross on Fridays

February 27, 2013
The OBSERVER

The Way of the Cross, also known as the "Stations of the Cross," invites participants to reflect on the passion of Christ and pray in gratitude for salvation won through the Cross of Jesus. This prayer goes back to the fourth century when Christians were able to openly go to Jerusalem to walk in the footsteps of Jesus. When it became dangerous to go to the Holy Land, the Stations were set up by the Franciscan friars who had been given custody of the Holy Land. In effect, the Stations are a "mini" pilgrimage.
