‘Way of the Cross’

Stations of the Cross

Sam Odrowski

St. Francis students Matthew Strain, left, and Alexa Bagacki hammered nails into a crucifix during the school’s interactive Stations of the Cross ceremony this morning. Participating in the Stations of the Cross around Easter time is a common Catholic tradition. There are 14 stations and each one depicts the successive events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion. Images or carvings that depict the stations are often displayed inside of Christian churches and Catholics often cycle through the stations, praying at each one leading up to Easter.
