St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church - Naperville, IL

Stations of the Cross

Pray the Stations of the Cross each Friday of Lent at 7:00 p.m. in the Church beginning March 8. Prayer, response, song, movement, and art will be used to help us reflect on Jesus’ greatest act of love for us. Having a simple meal and attending this service yourself or with family/friends can be a wonderful Lenten practice. Three different versions of the Stations will be used this year:

March 8 and March 29 – Everyone’s Way of the Cross
March 15 and April 5 – Social Justice Way of the Cross
March 22 and April 12 – Biblical Way of the Cross

The Social Justice Way of the Cross is a guide through the Stations as seen through the experiences of men and women who were witnesses of God’s love.

Everyone’s Way of the Cross invites readers to grow closer to Christ by embracing the mystery of suffering in the world. By joining Christ on this transformative journey, we learn to become his disciples–his other self–to a hurting world.

Based on the Stations initiated by Pope John Paul II in 1991, The Biblical Way
of the Cross
 offers a scriptural account of the condemnation and crucifixion
of Jesus.
