Stations of the Cross

Performed at Our Lady of Lourdes, 2222 Genesee St., Utica, NY 

In what has become an annual tradition at Notre Dame Jr/Sr High School, students perform a moving depiction of the Living Stations of the Cross for parishioners and school families on Fridays during Lent. 

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.
