St. Patrick gathers for Stations of the Cross

On Thursday, March 28, St. Patrick hosted the Stations of the Cross to help the students remember the real reason for this Easter season. There are fourteen stations, which all describe Jesus’ journey to his crucifixion on Golgotha Hill.

This is a very somber and meaningful event for all the students and staff involved. There were fourteen students who held up depictions of the stations, so the crowd could see a physical depiction of the stations. Additionally, while reflecting on the stations, there was calming music and meditation to go along with the explanations of the events of the stations.

The St. Patrick community feels it is necessary to understand what Jesus went through, in order to fully relate to him, so the stations are hosted multiple times throughout the season. Weekly Mass will pick up again next Thursday, April 4.

Ben Hartery, a junior at St. Patrick, commented, “It was so eye-opening to hear about what Jesus had to go through to save us humans from our sins. The reflection and prayer that went along with this was also very powerful, and I enjoyed this the most. Growing closer to God is always my favorite part of the week.
