Walk the Way of the Cross

Friday at Noon, April 14, 2017
Good Friday at Catholic Cemeteries

Tradition holds that after the Ascension of Jesus, the Blessed Mother walked along the Via Dolorosa (the Way of Sorrow) in Jerusalem, repeating the steps of her Son as he carried his cross to Calvary. At certain spots she would kneel and pray. In this way, she became the first pilgrim to retrace the Way of the Cross.


Come continue this tradition as we walk together—praying for our departed loved ones—at one of the following Catholic cemeteries where the Good Friday Stations will be prayed:
