WHAT IS JOURNEY TO THE CROSS?
Experience the road to Calvary and the path to the empty tomb in this experiential Easter event that deepens your appreciation for the Passion of Christ. Touch, taste, smell, see, hear, and experience the life, death and resurrection of Jesus in real and memorable ways.
WHY JOURNEY TO THE CROSS?
Which is easier – describing the taste of your favorite food or letting someone have a bite? When you share your slice of triple cheese pizza, your friend experiences the flavor, texture, and aroma. Your friend has a fuller experience than if you merely described it. In the same way, Journey to the Cross enriches our understanding of the Passion story.
By experiencing the story in an interactive way, you, your family, and your friends gain a new and deeper appreciation of Christ’s death and resurrection.
What is involved?
The activity involves progressing through 13 stations, each station representing a particular event in Christ’s journey to the cross.
Is it a group / individual activity?
The ‘journey’ is largely for individual contemplation and prayer – the focus being stillness before God.
How long does it take?
The whole ‘Journey’ will take between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how long the participant spends at each station. The idea is to take time, and not rush.
