Self-Guided Stations of the Cross, March 25 through March 30

Starting March 25 and continuing through Holy Week, a self-guided booklet on the Stations of the Cross will be available in the church. The guide is based on ten images from Kathrin Burleson's The Soul's Journey: An Artist's Approach to the Stations of the Cross, prints of which will be in the window wells of the church. The worship space is open from about 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for quiet prayer and reflection throughout the week. This is a lovely way to prepare for or follow Holy Week liturgies on Thursday and Friday.
