Stations of the Cross Hikes

Throughout the day, there will be Stations of the Cross Hikes.

These provide a substantially different opportunity than the traditional stations we pray in church. The guide uses St. John Paul II's Scriptural Stations of the Cross, allowing us to focus on different aspects of Holy Week and to offer a more ecumenical experience. The guides used also invite us to enter Holy Saturday from the perspective of those who first lived it and then challenges us to apply that reality, 2000 years ago, to our lives today.

The hike takes about 3 hours and encourages sharing and reflection between each station. Please join us if you are able!

There are two sets of hikes. There are women's hikes at Bergamo and men's hikes at Calvary Cemetery. Women can register here and men can register here.  Thank you!

Preparation Rites: Ephphetha & Naming

At 8:30am those who will receive the Sacraments of Initiation at Easter Vigil will participate in the Ephphetha and Naming Rites, in final preparation for the Sacraments of Initiation at Easter Vigil. Please pray for those who have been on the RCIA journey.
