PRINTABLE HOLY WEEK RESOURCES
STATIONS OF THE CROSS MEDITATIONS
From the earliest days of the Church, Christians remembered Jesus’ life and death by visiting and praying at the places where Jesus lived, suffered, died, and rose from the dead.
By establishing “stations,” or places to stop and pray, local churches began inviting people to “follow in the footsteps of Jesus” at their own parish churches.
Use these Stations of the Cross Meditations with your family as you celebrate Holy Week and prepare for Easter!
